Thanks for your interest in Team Rhinamic.  I'm Marty and in 30-something years of independent contracting, most everyone I've called on has visions of ideal surroundings... just not the wherewithal to make them happen.  My son, my purple team and I are your wherewithal. Let Team Rhinamic build your dream.

 As you stroll through images of our projects, absorb our philosophy by looking at the details. It's proof of our quality validated by repeat client's comments. I want to develop a trusted home owner/contractor relationship that lasts for decades. When someone recommends Team Rhinamic we're honored to put our reputation behind their word.

 My name is Marty Ruona.  I come from a family of old-school craftsmen. My dad and uncle were concrete and masonry contractors. Grandpa was a carpenter and mom was an artist and gardener.

 Landscape and recreational space design is my full time passion, come hot or cold, just not hail, mud or flooding. And detailed craftsmanship fueled by creativity are the tools I bring to work on your world.

 Where do we start? By hearing your vision, dreams, challenges, special needs and desires, I'll be able to vision myself into your lifestyle mindset. Then we can create options for you to consider, tweak and play around with.

Residential Projects:

Many houses have restrictions on their potential. Tell us your vision and we'll design to maximize space and let you breathe. If more functionality involves removing walls, we're not afraid to install a load bearing support beam to open up the rooms. Enjoy the feel of an open design! We cover the complete renovation or spot projects, like kitchen, bathroom or flooring upgrades, walls retexturing and adding special touches.

Exterior Projects:

My landscape designs reflect a blend of my carpentry skills, design flair and gardening expertise. Green things are my babies. That said, landscaping is only partially about plant selection.  The ideal state is to create an interesting landscape before any plants are added.

 In our South Texas environment the most economical, longest lasting and easiest to maintain way to go is xeriscaping. Unfortunately many Texans imagine "desert barren" as the extent of xeric design. As a Texas Master Gardener since 1992, I"ve studied micro-climates within a yard. So I marry environmentally adapted plants, colors, heights and textures with the most suitable locations for them. Once the ground work is done, you will discover how easy it is to maintain them and how little extra it takes to really make them spectacular.

 I sculpt garden layouts into multi-level tiers to break up lack-luster terrain. Interesting rocks and pebble or decomposed granite textures add interest. Each level can contain different soils to create a happy place for plant selections that work well together.

Often a landscape design includes a wooden structure: an arbor, deck or  an improved fence. Add a pathway meandering through the yard and incorporate fun vignettes along the way. Every garden should have hidden secrets or surprises. Not all features should be evident from a single vantage point. Discover the different views by adding a seating area to gain a new perspective. Each yard is unique - what will yours look like in a month?

 Let's start somewhere! Let's prioritize projects into phases and leave sensible cut-off points. Let's pick up the next stages when you're ready. This allows you to budget for each phase without having to re-do stuff you've already paid for. Imagine accomplishing your ultimate dream in several stages. To most people this approach makes so much more sense.

 Did you get inspiring ideas from the photos? Know that each one started with a "Well, what I was hoping for . . ." and we applied ourselves to collaborating on that dream.  Now imagine we apply ourselves to your home ... we'd love to make you proud.
