With rapid development continuing to take effect in Austin, it’s not often we get to work with a gem like this four-unit complex built in the 1930’s. That’s back when the Mueller Airport just opened their doors, Austin mainly composed of downtown, East Austin, and the UT campus, and Hyde Park was considered the suburbs.

For our client it was important to create a garden that included areas for gathering and entertaining in a style that harmonized with the existing architecture. He not only wanted to create a cohesive scheme for the entire complex, but create a space for him and his residents to enjoy, as he also lived on the property.

The design took on a Mediterranean feel with xeric plantings like rosemary and olive, decomposed granite, and numerous terra cotta pots. A new outdoor kitchen with deck and storage solutions, as well as a water feature that tied in with the existing rock work, helped create that tuscan-feel with added style and warmth. We finished it off with a compact zoysia lawn, so passersby can sit and relax under a lacebark elm.

Look what we found on the job site today! Oxbeetles are the largest and most common beetle species found in the US. They are very active in the summer and like to dig holes in sandy soil to hide in during the day, so be on the lookout! ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣#creepycrawlies #bugs #bugsofinstagram #beneficialinsects #landscape…

Happy Friday everyone! For her latest design, our designer @jillatnativeedge had to think full picture. Due to the location of this customer’s home on a corner lot most of their yard space is accessible from the street. Plantings and new #riverrock help enclose the space, add privacy, and reduce noise pollution so the homeowner’s can…

When this customer bought her home a large dying tree had wrecked havoc on the existing landscape, and she was ready to start over. She wanted to create a space that was not only appealing, but provided room for her grandson to play.

In the front, we used a combination of street side plantings and flagstone landings add curb appeal and accessibility. In the back, play spaces are integrated within an array of nectar-rich plantings to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. This encourages play in an area that would otherwise serve as just a path from the front yard to the back. A recycled tire dragon greats you as you make your way to the back yard, while a cedar climbing wall serves double duty by also screening the AC unit from view. Another double duty solution was the screening added to the stairs; this provides discrete storage as well as a garden space for herbs.
