The Village of Salado, Texas is a lovely historic town nestled in the central Texas Hill Country. With many bed & breakfasts, wineries, and over 60 shops and art galleries, it has become a popular destination for visitors worldwide.

Keep Salado Beautiful (KSB) is an official all-volunteer council serving the needs of the Village. Its mission is to educate and engage Salado citizens to take responsibility for improving their community environment. KSB began as a city resolution passed in 2008 and in 2009 received official affiliation from the Keep Texas Beautiful campaign.

To educate visitors about each unique garden and about the Salado Gardens project, KSB harnessed the creativity of Salado’s High School students to design original sign-art for each garden. KSB then chose iZone Imaging’s durable, custom high pressure laminate (CHPL) to showcase the new signs. With a ten-year warranty and the ability to capture and preserve vibrant graphics, iZone Imaging’s CHPL signs will help showcase the Salado Gardens community project for many years to come.
