New Herb, Vegetable and Fruit Gardens Take Root in Katy’s Cane Island 

Residents of Katy’s Cane Island now can pick their own herbs, vine-ripe tomatoes, flavorful peppers and a handful of other fresh produce thanks to a new collection of raised gardens in the community’s Amenity Village.
Hub’s Garden, aptly named after the Cane Island’s popular canine ambassador, features several raised planter boxes adjacent to the Amenity Village conservatory where residents can pick herbs, fruits and vegetables at no cost. The gardens are managed by Cane Island’s landscaping team.
While there is no limit to the amount residents can pick, Cane Island Director of Marketing Lawren Eckhardt says residents are considerate to make sure there’s plenty for everyone.
“Every time I pass by the gardens, there’s a resident stopping by to see what’s ready to be picked,” she says. “It’s become quite a popular spot in the Amenity Village.”
The 2016 GHBA Community of the Year, Cane Island presents new luxury homes from the mid $200s to the millions from CalAtlantic Homes, Coventry Homes, David Weekley Homes, Perry Homes, Shea Homes, Toll Brothers and Trendmaker Homes.
The community also offers the Estates at Cane Island, an exclusive, gated enclave of custom homes by Jeff Paul Custom Homes, Mike Harrison Custom Homes, Westport and William David Custom Homes featuring half-acre homesites and Houston’s first street pantries.
