Asakura Robinson Company provided tree preservation, planting and irrigation design, and construction observation services, for the urban streetscape redevelopment along Bagby and Pierce Streets within the Midtown District of Houston, Texas.
The street reconstruction project includes substantial improvements to the pedestrian realm by providing a consistent tree canopy, replanting planting areas with drought-tolerant but
attractive plantings and replacing disjointed irrigation systems with a comprehensive, low-water irrigation system. Bioswales are designed to capture and filter storm water runoff through biofiltration areas. These areas are planted with drought and flood tolerant plantings that will benefit from the additional stormwater.
