At El Paso’s Kern Place Crazy Cat Cyclery store, the architect and I created some small but distinct spaces using our ubiquitous rock walls with grade changes.
It won an AIA El Paso award a couple years ago.
That enclosed, communal space with a single Quercus fusiformis and some Yucca pallida is good. It’s mostly being maintained well, too.
The small spaces on the side will fill in more, as the sotols grow and damianitas hopefully reseed around.
I still regret not insisting on what should have been done on the south street’s uphill climb.
Because mountain biking and good headlamps are important, so is good plantsmanship.
