Location: Houston

Company: McDugald-Steele

The Details: The client’s objective was to integrate a new residence and landscaping into a natural, mostly undisturbed 7.5-acre site.

Construction was staged over more than five years in five distinct phases. This approach allowed the project to proceed in small working “envelopes” that reduced the impact of construction on the property. The site naturally drained toward Buffalo Bayou, and preserving the bayou banks required focused efforts during and after construction.

These and other aspects of this project earned McDugald-Steele both a 2015 Grand Award and a Judges Award from the National Association of Landscape Professionals’ Awards of Excellence program.
