Dona Ana County Government Center

Location: Las Cruces, NM

Completed: 2004

Several of the major design considerations for this project were ease of landscape maintenance and the provision of  respite from the warm summer temperatures for visitors and employees of this southern New Mexico administrative facility. Another primary design approach was to create winter interest through the use of evergreen plants and trees such as cedars and palm trees. An attractive front entry court was created through well-detailed hardscape features, and plants that provide four season interest.
