S-4 Shari and John

It is worth the long trip to Spicewood to see this marvelous and unique garden and pond. Shari is a master gardener and she has 300 to 400 species of plants located on a small hill next to her house which overlooks Lake Travis. Mixed in with the plants are statues, a wooden bridge over a bed of colored glass, a grand piano with plants in the interior, a hobby horse, a succulent growing out of a typewriter and other unique objects. Her garden incorporates some of the ideas of James Rose, a famous landscape architect whose designs created a fusion of indoor and outdoor space. His gardens created a relationship between human beings, nature and architecture as does Shari’s garden.
