Southern Methodist University

Urban University Grounds
Honor Award

In many areas, the landscape at SMU is formal reflecting the programs taught in the surrounding buildings while meeting the environmental needs of Dallas. Where possible, we let our imaginations go, showcasing some plants that many would not be familiar with, while demonstrating the large pallet of material which can be use in North Texas. We want to help educate the public on what plants can be used at their homes and what it takes to make them flourish. Our landscape helps set the tone for what those who live, work and attend college will expect during their time at SMU.
