This modern house listed for sale by Realty Austin needed some curb appeal that matched and complimented the exciting architecture. We designed a landscape that added privacy through clumping bamboo in the front and back, gave proper circulation to the front door, and added steel edging to frame and level out some spaces. The backyard needed only enough lawn to act as a placeholder for a pool in the future, and we created a gravel patio that brings the grade up to the top stair of the sunken patio. A dense planting plan gives immediate texture and color for interest.
