Mark Word at Hotel San José

Mark Word's famous landscaping at Hotel San José, Austin, Texas...as seen in the afternoon sun.






As dusk descends, let's stroll around the garden.

  5. Mark Word did NOT design the landscape at Hotel San Jose. That credit belongs to Selena Sounders and Dylan Robertson from Big Red Sun. Dylan now runs another company called DCrain. Mark does maintain the property but it should be made clear who the actual designers were.

  6. Anonymous,

    Thank you for your information regarding Selena Souders and Dylan Robertson's design of the original landscaping at Hotel San Jose.

    Prior to writing this post, I had several sources who reported Mark Word as the landscape designer for Hotel San Jose, including staff at Hotel Saint Cecilia. I went back to my sources and the best clarification I can offer is that Mark Word's website states:

    "Plant and stone installation and maintenance since 2001."

  7. Hi,

    Thanks for writing such an interesting article. It’s really good to know about the real estate and home decoration and renovation in detail. A beautifully groomed lawn and garden are in the dreams of most homeowners and whether their property is spacious or a postage stamp, getting that look they desire is going to require a big investment of time and labor intensive work, so a good alternative is hiring a reliable San Jose Landscaping company. Not only will San Jose landscaping company free up your time and save your back but a well landscaped property can actually increase the value of your home.

    Landscaping is a big business and a professionally landscaped property can cost thousands. You need to use caution since anyone with a truck, a couple of hedges and a mower can call themselves a landscaping company.

    Thanks,
    - Sibley

  11. I tend not to leave a lot of responses, but I read a few of
    the remarks here "Mark Word at Hotel San Jos�. I do have 2 questions for you if it's okay. Could it be just me or does it give the impression like some of the remarks appear like they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other social sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Would you make a list of all of your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
