Brentwood Family Escape

by Rodney Stoutenger / January 10, 2017

Our customers for this project were a young, active family new to Austin with a keen eye for design and a love of the outdoors. The main goal of this project was to implement an outdoor living space while also providing an area for their dogs and kids to be active. 

Starting in the front yard, we added a walkway to connect with the street to create a welcoming entrance for guests.  Next we focused on extending their indoor living space into the backyard by implementing elements that they would draw them outside. The new patio and fire pit, built-in seating opportunities, an outdoor shower, and an adjustable louvered pergola help keep the space comfortable for everyday use. A rain water catchment and a raised garden and herb wall create opportunities to interact with their landscape. The inclusion of the custom built play area gives the kids a separate place to play while mom and dad entertain. 

The home was a new construction, with unique yard layout that left us with a series of corners. These customers were conscious of choosing environmentally friendly options to work with nature in their space rather than combat it. We were able to create movement within the yard and soften the structures with native plantings that added energy to the space.

Crestview Rustic Oasis

by Rodney Stoutenger / March 18, 2016

Iron Planter Detail

What we love most about our landscapes is having fun! That is why it is always so great to be a part of a project with such personality!
These homeowners were a fun couple, with great history – picking up electric art and sculptures along the way! Every piece having it’s own story! When we started on our landscape design here, we knew we had to be able to tell a story throughout the landscape.
We created this landscape as a frame to a photo on the wall; to only showcase the customer’s great finds and adventures.
We used simple, timelines materials in order for the landscape style to transition with the homeowners throughout the seasons, and throughout the years to come!

Crestview Modern Craftsman

by Rodney Stoutenger / October 1, 2013

AfterWhat a fantastic couple to work with! We were presented with the challenges of needing more outdoor living space, a place to rinse after long bike rides, and an area for the young couples newest addition to play. We did it! We doubled the outdoor living space, added an outdoor shower just off the new patio, and managed to use the shape of the yard to our advantage to create an easy flow and accessibility to the yard! We were left with a new landscape that fit this young couples awesome style of a modern-craftsman infusion!
