The City of Austin’s Mayfield Park is one of the most magical and unique historic garden spaces in Austin. Co’design has been hired to develop a landscape master plan to rehabilitate the park’s historic landscape character. Though the park has a dedicated volunteer staff who diligently maintain the park’s ponds and flower beds, the surrounding landscape or “bones of the site” are in need of attention. The intent of the master plan will be to research and document the site’s character defining features — including plants and hardscape– and provide recommendations, not only for landscape rehabilitation, but a comprehensive maintenance plan for long-term stewardship.
