Brentwood Xeriscape

By Rodney Stoutenger | Comments 6

IMG_4481Small yards are always a welcomed challenge!  The exposed utilities, and awkward slope presented even more landscape challenges to deal with.  Despite these obstacles, we were able to create an accessible and inviting space by using three different pathways as a focal feature of the yard, leading into the open and borderless design.
To makes the space feel larger, a custom designed steel retaining wall was installed and the yard was regraded to achieve this effect.  The sawn limestone slab stairs wedged between sheets of steel offer a contrast that is Modern-Rustic; a landscape style emerging here in Austin. A steel trellis to hide a collection of utilities is featured opposite a steel box planter, which add to the style as well as complimenting the asymmetry of the home very nicely.
We used a simple, airy, and of course, drought-tolerant plant palette.  Evergreen trailing rosemary to spill over the retaining wall, a carpet of thymes to creep in amongst the limestone slab pavers, and some well chosen tropical looking plants will soften the entire feel as they grow.  It’s such a unique landscape! Can’t wait to see how it matures!

Brentwood Bermuda Invasion

By Rodney Stoutenger | 1 Comment

This project is a perfect example of how a few simple changes can produce a powerful impact! Tired of constantly fighting the Bermuda grass creeping into his garden beds, this customer was ready to make some changes! And in the process, reduce the time and waste of watering!

With this in mind, we selected native and drought tolerant plant material to utilize in the updating of his existing garden bed lines. With a balanced mixture of taller upright plants for  architectural accents, and a colorful mixture of ground covers for year round color, this garden went from drab to fab with a few easy steps!

Now this property has an updated look, with a simple maintenance plan!
