Most recent Landscape install in Austin Texas at Meridian Subdivision.

Agave LD does more than just Lawn Maintenance, Landscape Maintenance, and Lawn Care. We also provide Landscape Design and Installation.  We have worked with many people in Meridian subdivision and in this blog post we will demonstrate our most recent landscape installation in Austin, Texas at Meridian.

Every installation is different and that is why we name each of our landscapes. This landscape installation is called Alophia Residence in Austin (Meridian Subdivision). 

Details: Our client had a drainage issue that was causing a real problem in their backyard. There was also a necessary clean-up because not enough sunshine could get through the unnecessary trees (we only kept the Live Oaks). This backyard needed to become more usable and also needed to accommodate the natural flow of water through the terrain. We also had to keep in mind that our client had a pet so we incorporated enough space for it to still be able to have fun.

Before Picture (the clean-up was already performed)

Agave LD Proposed Design:

Agave LD Solution: We placed catch basins in key places throughout the backyard to capture as much water as possible. Then we created a functional dry creek where all the water could flow through. We also re-sodded the right side of the backyard with Zoysia where the pet could still have plenty of space to run around. We also installed a crushed granite gravel path leading to a sitting area where the homeowners could enjoy their beautiful new landscape. Behind the dry creek we planted Texas native plants such as Blue Agaves, Red Yuccas, Mexican Feather Grass, Purple Heart, and Bicolor Iris. The homeowner couldn’t be happier with the end result.
