Above all, Kelly Engram’s favorite past time is gardening. It began after purchasing a fixer-upper house in San Marcos in 1996. 11 years later, after much trial and error, she won Yard of the Month, and gardening became a priority. Many afternoons were spent toiling in the garden and developing an understanding of fundamental design principles, drainage, topography, regional materials, and plant characteristics as well as ecological requirements.

Years later, with a graphic design background, Kelly created her own landscape plan and the contractor hired to do the work was very impressed. Therefore, he asked her to design plans for his clients.

Not surprisingly, the need for an independent landscape designer in the San Marcos area became apparent. Kelly Engram’s process is fed by clear communication and a commitment to deliver a plan on time and meets the scope defined by you.

Additionally, Kelly specializes in residential projects that encourage homeowners to linger and enjoy their outdoor spaces. The designs rely on native and adapted plants and hardscape materials that naturally blend into Central Texas landscapes. Sustainable design incorporating the natural beauty of the region is the bedrock of beautiful Central Texas landscapes.
