ONE WITH NATURE
Naturalist Jason Pautz grew up working his family’s organic farm near Dallas growing herbs and other plants for market. In addition to chemistry,
the Texas Tech bachelor of science grad studied wildlife management, soils, plant physiology, ornithology, and mammalogy. Field studies of na-
tive grasses and plants of the Southern High Plains, Blackland Prairies, and Crosstimbers regions of Texas—as well as the Hill Country— make
Pautz Landscape a full-service landscape design group. Says Barbara, “Our landscape architect was Jason Pautz. His interpretation of David’s
and my ideas were a total success. The plantings and rough stone borders are very organic and totally complement the architecture and setting.”

RAISE HIGH THE ROOFBEAMS
These exceptional Korean roof tiles have been in Barbara’s collection for
30 years. “They are hand-painted and were part of the roof overhang on
important buildings in Korea,” Barbara recounts. “I found them in the
warehouse of an importer in San Francisco with cardboard boxes piled
on them. What a find!”
