Mueller Southwest Greenway Wins Design Award

We are excited to share the news that the Mueller Southwest Greenway has received an Honor Award from the ASLA Texas Chapter.  RVi’s own Barbara Austin accepted the award together with Pam Hefner of the City of Austin’s Economic Development Department.  The award was presented at the Texas ASLA Conference Awards Reception in San Antonio earlier this month. 

The Southwest Greenway is an example of how parkland can become a community asset through environmental restoration, education, and connection with residents.  Designed by RVi as a series of “rooms,” the 30-acre public park features a variety of seed mixes selected to support different uses, and signage throughout the park educates visitors about all aspects of the prairie.  The Southwest Greenway also serves a very important role in stormwater management for the community, featuring a beautiful pond that not only filters and slows the stormwater, but also blends seamlessly into the landscape.


Friday Design Review at Caliterra

RVi recently took advantage of the beautiful spring weather by hosting our Monthly Design Review on-site at Caliterra in Dripping Springs. Project Directors Dennis Tonsor and Peter Dufrene presented RVi's work on the community to-date, including years of planning and recent landscape architectural design for the community amenities.

Following the presentation, the team piled into the pickup and took a tour of the entire site. University of Texas fans in the group were excited to meet Bevo's extended family!
