WRAPPED IN NATURE…

…a destination pool with trailside attractions for picnicking + playing among the shady trees. Inspired by Barton Springs Pool, this landscape provides the connection between spaces, people + habitat.

VEGETATION

The site offered up a wide variety of native plants including escarpment live oak (QUFU), evergreen sumac (RHVI3), escarpment black cherry (PRSEE), Texas persimmon (DITE3), kidneywood (EYTE), twisted-leaf yucca (YURU), Spanish dagger (YUTR) + much more.  Additional plantings were postponed for a later time.
