The Uplift

An uplift is a geological process by which the Earth’s crust is raised or elevated, often by tectonic forces, which impacts the topography and hydrology of a region. In Austin, the Balcones Fault zone is responsible for the uplift of the Edwards Plateau, which contributes to the distinctive landscape of the Texas Hill Country.

An uplift can also refer to a positive change in one’s emotional state, mood, or well-being. We hope that our blog will offer a combination of these things; a new way of viewing landscape architecture, and an uplifting experience.
