The goal of the Pease Park Conservancy is for Pease Park to be known as an accessible urban green space for play, adventure, and connectivity, where land stewardship, environmental innovation, and inclusive programming embrace the community’s history and inspire its future. Maas Verde Landscape Restoration was engaged to construct a retaining wall adjacent to North Lamar in furtherance of that vision.
Safety is always a priority at Maas Verde, but because this construction took place in a public park with public access, it became a highlight of the project for both workers and parkgoers. Using anchored cinderblocks as the structural base, our team constructed a secure retaining wall reinforced by rebar and finished with natural limestone. We worked with stakeholders in the Pease Park Conservancy (a 501(c)3 non-profit) and the City of Austin to ensure that the project exceeded expectations.
