We moved in to our house in the Oak Hill neighborhood of South Austin in April of 2008. The home was built in 1976 with a full size tennis court on the 1.25 acre lot. We immediately removed the old court in order to reclaim the space for gardening. I grow veggies in raised beds, antique and a few modern roses, drought tolerant plants and whatever else catches my eye in the nursery. I also like to bend rebar into useful shapes and arbors for plants to climb. I garden organically with lots of compost!
I am a real estate agent and enjoy helping my clients find houses with great gardens or potential. I also enjoy finding buyers for homes that have special gardens and outdoor spaces. Please visit me at: www.jenbutel.com if you or someone you know is considering buying or selling a home.
