The Vista is beautiful during any season of the year. During the winter months, the grounds are an emerald green with lush winter rye grass. The formal boxwoods surround the courtyard and the Bride’s Bridge. The Live Oak trees remain full of leaves with a base of green Cast Iron plants throughout the venue. Wild Nandinas full of bright red berries complement Spirea Evergreens surrounding your event. Pansies are additionally added for a touch of winter color and to complete the winter ambiance.
With spring, comes the changing of the red berries to gorgeous white flowers on the Nandina plants. The Native Iris begins to arrive along with various other treasures. The rest of the Oak trees grow back and blanket the Vista with even more greenery and welcoming shade. Various Snapdragons can also be observed in the flower beds that add striking sparks of color. Additionally, Jasmine, Red Bud Trees, and White Baby’s Breath pour through the garden and match the style of any event. During these beautiful, cool months, the transition of the seasons makes for an unforgettable event that is sure to be welcomed by all.
Summer time at the Vista on Seward Hill has more of a tropical feel with its many ponds, streams and waterfalls. The recent addition of LED lighting throughout the venue allows for a spice of color that can be custom tailored depending on your desire (available all year long). The Vista is also located on one of the tallest hills of Austin and allows for a consistent breeze that lowers the temperature approximately five degrees. Yellow and Pink Salvia, matched with Purple Verbena surround the courtyard with beautiful blossoms. Hot Pink roses and Mexican Heather continue to add small splashes of color to the Texas Summer.
As the feel of fall ends the year, all is still green and will continue through to the beginning of the New Year. Geraniums, various roses, Mexican Heather and Marigolds keep color alive. Along with a perfectly manicured lawn, LED lighting and colored lanterns, the Vista is nev er lacking in beauty…or color!

If changes are needed or desired, the Vista will gladly accommodate your wishes, but additional charges may be applied.
