Asakura Robinson Company provided landscape architectural services for the new Lone Star College campus located in Atascocita. The 13-acre site features a variety of stormwater best management practices. Meandering dry streambeds surround the building to direct stormwater runoﬀ through an attractive naturalized system rather than traditional pipes and inlets. The parking lot features several bioswales located within medians, which utilize plant material and engineered soil media to cleanse stormwater and remove pollutants. The project also features an outdoor patio with permeable pavers, which allow rainwater to inﬁltrate into the ground. The project’s total landscape architecture site improvements budget was approximately $300,000.
