A Leyendecker & Sides Exterior Design & Installation Landscape Company in Houston, Texas.
A well-executed garden and exterior space shouldn’t have to cost a fortune or be impossible to maintain, at least that’s the belief behind Exterior Texas—a Houston-based boutique landscaping venture that aims to improve the city’s outdoor spaces, one yard at a time.
Together, veteran landscaper Portia Leyendecker and the business-savvy René Sides have teamed up to fill a niche in the Houston landscaping market, offering approachable and affordable solutions for outdoor environments.
For Sides, who holds a Masters in Business and Bachelors in Psychology, Exterior Texas is a welcome opportunity to escape the corporate grind in favor of more fulfilling work in nature. At the same time, Sides’ corporate project management background helps ensure that each Exterior Texas project stays on schedule and on budget.
Meanwhile, Leyendecker brings more than 20 years of landscaping experience to the business, along with a customer base that’s familiar with her impact on the city’s sustainable gardening scene. In 2003, she founded Houston’s first organic farmers market and later established Seed Swap Houston—a non-GMO group focused on protecting local and heirloom seeds.
Together, the two deliver more than just eye-catching environments, rather they strive to create an extension of the home in fully-functional spaces that reflect the owners’ individual aesthetic.
