This Eco-Friendly Perennial Garden with Tortoise Habitat is located at 108 North Sterling Ave., Bryan, TX 77803 and is the home of Shawna Manning.
This garden is located near Historic Downtown Bryan. It utilizes a variety of permaculture and organic gardening techniques well suited to central Texas: including worm and standard composting, drip irrigation, organic pest control, Hugelkultur raised beds for growing vegetables, and rainwater harvesting. The majorities of the landscape plants are native or adapted to Texas and provide color throughout all seasons. Three large areas are designed and landscaped especially for box turtles and Russian tortoises. Enclosures were built using recycled building materials, repurposed landscape materials and hollowed trees.
