As a great man once said, "Let It Be." These photos and videos are from wild, suburban yards in Central Texas, Winter to Spring 2018. These yards are generally pruned and managed, not mowed and fertilized, which allows the natural ecosystem to do all the work of beautification and micro-climate stabilization. Special thanks to Julie Renfro, Amie King, the Dosters, and Matt Hubbard for sharing images from their wild yards.
