Edgar Gonzalez started his career doing landscape maintenance and small-scale installations and enhancements at Outdoor Elements, a company that specializes in building custom pools and backyard designs. After several years in that role, he became a branch manager at LMC Management, running their construction department. Edgar was hired on at B&D Landscape Contractors in February of 2021.
That would be the Shops at Telge Crossing. Typically a lazy river is just rock, but the one we had to install was up against a wall and in a very sloped ditch. It was hard to picture how we were going to have motion control and how the walls were going to retain. We requested the architect change his plan but he wouldn’t, so we had to make it work. In the end, it looked amazing.
Instead of just fixing a problem, make it an opportunity to make something better than you originally planned.
My favorite tree is the mexican sycamore. I like the shape and color of the leaves and the fact that it can thrive in Houston’s tough humid climate. It can sit in a pool of water and not rot or die. It’s durable and also looks good. I also love crepe myrtles. The dynamite red variety is not something you see everywhere.
