Texas ContemporaryFarmhouse Exterior, Austin

DRM Design Group provided Landscape Architecture services for a Local Austin, Texas residence. We worked closely with Redbud Custom Homes and Tim Brown Architecture to create a custom low maintenance- low water use contemporary landscape design. This Eco friendly design has a simple and crisp look with great contrasting colors that really accentuate the existing trees.

    On this project the clients wanted very low maintenance and had no interest in any sort of gardening. The original idea was to do a massing of a low native sedge but through the construction process that was unfortunately switched to lawn. Thanks for your input!

    I love the landscaping! More would've looked good as well, I'm sure, but I really love this... Minimalistic, low maintenance, clean!

      3. Crisp paint colors. Historically, farmhouses in the United States were almost always painted white for reasons that were practical rather than aesthetic. Lime-based whitewash paint was cheap and readily available in Colonial times, and the lime in the paint worked as a disinfectant and odor-disguiser — useful on many levels around a farm. The tradition of clean white farmhouse exteriors has rolled over into modern designs and is still a common paint color of choice for a farmhouse look. That being said, off-whites and pale neutrals don’t look out of place, and painting the trim around windows and doors, as we see with this Austin, Texas, home, is an increasingly popular way to create a more modern farmhouse-style exterior.

      A fave. Too narrow tho. Note the roof.
