S-3 Mark A

Mark A and Debbie
This breathtaking garden has been featured on KLRU and is one of the most popular in Austin. Move beyond the patio and swimming pool and you will find the origin of the artesian spring that releases 10,000 to 20,000 gallons of water into the two meandering streams that drop into the 40,000 gallon pond. Surrounded by slabs of limestone excavated from the property, the pond contains an abundance of lilies and marginals. Go past the gazebo at the rear of the pond and wander through the maze that the owner constructed for his wife after she donated a kidney to him. The maze spells out the word Love and includes sculptures and plaques related to health ad kidney research.
Then stroll down the pathways and enjoy the large variety of both native and tropical plants. Continue to the rear of the garden and explore the pirate ship and princess house.
