The Green Medians project consisted of the landscaping and irrigation the newly installed medians by TxDOT along FM 1960. The overall project length was 7.67 miles, from just west of SH 249 to just west of IH 45.
This project presented itself as a challenging design opportunity, due to the narrow area of work and harsh roadway environment, but Asakura Robinson successfully devised creative design solutions and plant material selections to surpass the client’s needs and expectations.
The Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce Green Medians Committee, under the leadership of Barbara Schlattman, raised over $515,000 to install irrigation and landscape medians along FM 1960. Asakura Robinson Company was subsequently awarded an on-going contract to perform monthly site inspection and coordinate maintenance issues with the contractor and the Joint Powers Board, a representative group from the area responsible for maintenance.
