Thoughtful design that places people first.

If you're looking for the modern touch and lasting solution to your landscape design; we design and build landscapes that have a positive impact on family, friends, neighbors, and the surrounding native habitat. 


Ecology

Simply put, invasive plants are over-running our waterways, nature areas, and lawns. Initially introduced by humans, their seeds are spread by wind, animals, and water very quickly.  These invasive plants, listed here by the city of Austin, contribute to the destruction of native plants, wildlife habitat, and the overuse of water. 

Water conservation is an urgent ecological issue that we must acknowledge as a community very soon. During the summer, approximately 50% of all our water supply in Austin is used on our lawns.  As the population of central Texas continues to grow, it is clear that we cannot continue using millions of gallons of water on grass. 

Combining the use of Native Texas plant species with principles of xeriscaping, Terra Dura creates lush abundant landscapes which serve to address the ecological problems that face central Texas today. 


Community-Oriented Design

Community-oriented design is an approach to design which addresses the usability and welcoming nature of your landscape. The best way to make a street, neighborhood, or city a better place to live is by knowing your neighbor. With this in mind, we create usable and interactive outdoor spaces that welcome human interaction while still maintaining a sense of privacy. Front yard sitting areas, fire pits, low sitting walls, front yard gardens, porches, and inviting walkways are simple ways to make a home more conducive to meaningful relationships. Terra Dura Landscapes can assist you in designing the perfect space for your landscape and lifestyle. 


Collaborative

Ultimately, we are concerned with designing a space that suits your needs and goals. We do not simply take your design fees and hand you a design. We see you as the expert of your space. Together, with our expertise of the material and your knowledge of how you utilize your yard, we can design the space that best suits all of your needs.
