here, if you're unfamiliar with mine). I do wonder though, who did it first? I tend to think it may have been the Big Red Sun (see photos of their signature steel dishes here), a design company / retail shop originally based in Austin, but now in Venice, CA. And since these are in downtown Austin I wonder if they are from the Big Red Sun?
Whatever the case I love them, and applaud their cramscaping ways.
People often look at my dish planters and worry about the shallow area for roots, ha! Mine have nothing on these, with those tall Yucca rostrata.
The Agave 'Sharkskin' look to have been a little abused.
But wow, I would really like to have these in my garden!
March 2011, one of the conifers has dissappeared...
And the planters finally show up in February of 2014, but with Agaves and cement balls!
July 2014 — and note — it looks like the same plants have been in the dish planters all along.
