Meet Austin and Erin. When they purchased their new homebrabout 2 years ago, they felt like the landscape didn’t really make sense: some of the plants were nice, but the designbrwas too symmetrical and bland. They tried a DIY approach at first, but decidedbrthey were missing the professional, modern touch they were looking for. Plus,brSouth Texas clay soil is not easy to dig into – time to call in the pros!
Phillip, a landscape designer here at Gill’s, was able tobrwork with Austin and Erin on a design that created a better sense of flow –brless symmetry and more curves and layers. Since the plants in their existingbrlandscape were relatively young, Phillip and his team were able to rearrangebrsome areas using existing plants – including Erin’s Agave that she grew in abrpot. Once the work was complete, they used some well-placed outdoor lighting tobrhighlight trees and design details at night.
Austin and Erin both say that the thing they enjoy mostbrabout the updated landscape is the sense of calm that the design creates. Now thatbrthey’re feeling good about the spacious front yard, they’re working withbrPhillip to design the back.
