Trowel & Error benefits one of Austin’s favorite and enchanting parks, historic Mayfield. Guests will tour the restored Mayfield-Gutsch home, surrounded by stone-walled gardens patterned in the 1920’s after the cottage gardens of England. Towering palms, flowering trees and perennials line meandering paths set among ponds filled with water lilies and fish. Gregarious peacocks supervise overflowing flower beds planted and maintained by community volunteers.
