SUNNY EDGE

Before the process of urbanization, the ground plane in this area of Texas was wrinkled and rolling along significant contours as water from rainfall bubbled along the surface to join with perennial creeks and rivers. A great deal of the water simply percolated into the subsoil, as the ground was more like a sponge with little voids, pots and basins to catch and slow the flow. This saved-up water in the ground is later reissued to the surface from countless springs.

DESIGN SUPPORT

Design treatments that acknowledging the value of surface water flow for creekside zones include sculpted contours to convey stormwater atop natural river gravel, among occasional boulder outcroppings, supported by vegetation that simultaneously metabolizes stormwater while protecting the material transitions along this ecological seam.
