austin outdoor living tour

This year’s tour welcomed hundreds of visitors to the ECOTOPES design studio as we opened our garden spaces for the kick-off tour of the summer outdoors.  Our team of artisans + designers were on hand to grilling tasty treats, demonstrating our craft + answering your questions about design + ecology.  Check here for information about next year’s tour.

We were out of charcoal, so decided to go “ranch-style” with oak from surrounding trees. I’d say the cookout turned out to be quite delicious. #hibachito ...

SURFACES

bringin' the heat

Few things are more important to a Texan than cooking outdoors over a searing open fire. Our hibachi grills are inspired by, not only the cowboy campfire tradition, but our burning passion for hanging out in the shade with all our friends.

Everybody needs to spread the word: hibachito is the king of grills!
