Tree Landscaping Design Concept Summary: The Performing Arts Center and the new landscaping along Moon Street, Edward Gary Street, and Woods Street will form a new front entry to the Texas State University-San Marcos Campus. The landscaping, the sidewalks and the pedestrian lighting is designed to enhance the new entry image.
Tree Design Concept: Moon Street and Edward Gary Street were designed with a center median to increase the landscaping area within the entry streets. Live Oak trees will be planted in the medians, as well as, on the sides of the streets, to create a shaded canopy in future years. On the east side of Moon Street, Cypress trees will be planted to compliment the Cypress trees that are currently growing around the Ponds. Woods Street will also have several Live Oak trees lining the side to form a future canopy. Three existing Live Oak trees on Moon Street near the Falls Hall site will be removed to open the view to the main entry to the new Recital Hall & Theater Center. Several other trees, such as, Mountain Laurels, Yaupon Hollies, and Crape Myrtles will be planted at this location to enhance the main entry to the building.
On University Drive, from Moon Street to N. LBJ Drive, the street will be lined with high-rise type Live Oak trees. These trees are narrow and straight and designed for narrow spaces and will shade the sidewalk and soften the elevations of the University Drive Parking Garage and the Recital Hall & Theatre Center.
