Texas Hill Country Character

The Texas Hill Country is characterized by thin alkaline soils and limestone outcroppings supporting Live Oaks and springtime drifts of blue bonnets and other wildflowers.

As suburbs continue to be developed from Fredericksburg to Boerne and Bandera, the natural landscapes that make the area desirable are in danger of being replaced with a more traditional landscape. The thin, alkaline soils make these types of landscapes difficult to maintain.

Today many home builders and home owners are choosing to leave a portion of their land in the natural state that drew them to the area. A landscape that is designed to blend seamlessly from the untouched area of a property to a more formal landscape close to the house can be achieved through a landscape design. Have a space for wildflowers and other plants that will blend in with your landscape.

Bluebonnets always make a beautiful flower garden addition. There are many plants native to the Texas Hill Country. Burroughs Landscaping can help you design your new home or existing home exterior property to look as beautiful as you dreamed.
