December 2016: We're Celebrating 5 years!

5 years ago, Matt and I started OES with one employee - our longtime project manager, Shawn Latta. A few weeks after we put all of our eggs in one basket in December of 2011, I found out I was pregnant with our second daughter, Ansley, with 2.5 year old Eloise in tow. Our first year's goals were simple: stay busy enough to feed our growing family and make some beautiful landscapes. Over the past four years, we've grown from a handful of employees to a group of 16 in the office and the field. One of my goals for 2016 was to see "Open Envelope Studio" in print, and by the end of this year we've been in five magazines! The cherry on top was the one where we were voted the Landscaping winner

In the Winter 2016 issue of Austin Home Magazine, Matt and I were interviewed about the landscape design and build at Anderson Residence. The home has a sunken patio with a lot of potential. We reworked the patio with pavers, plants, and gravel in time for the clients to host a cancer benefit. Bench Fabrication: Big Bismuth Writer: Jenny Peterson
