We love a good before and after and this patio remodel in Southlake is no exception.  This customer called us in to extend their existing patio that was primarily decomposed granite.  They wanted to remove their holly tree to allow for more usable space as well as lay down pavers.  Although decomposed granite can be a great alternative is some spaces, it’s rock base makes it uncomfortable to walk on.

Our crew worked diligently to get the installation job done for them, these “before” pictures show the space in more detail.

These “after” pictures speak for themselves.  They now have a cleaner look, a much larger foot print for usage, and a space they can enjoy for years to come that actually gives their home a higher property value.  They chose a Belgard paver, Catalina Grana, in “Leuter’s Gray.”

Once the furniture went back into place you get an even better idea of just how much more space they have.  Removing the Holly tree allowed them to get a lounging area with fire pit and rearrange the dining table.

The a-joining wall space also features oversized planters and a fountain from our nursery.  We visiting the client’s home in April and planted this summer display of flowers, and with a sprinkler system in place that waters the planters daily, they have thrived all summer long.  Featured in the planters are foxtail ferns, million bells, zinnia, ivy, sweet alyssum and dipladenia.

 

These purple “million bells” are a wonderful full sun flower that really shine all summer long.

 

Another summer stunner from our nursery are black eyed susan.  These yellow members of the sunflower family shine wherever they are planted.

Here are the side by side comparisons of the project.  The client also had their fence replaced by our exclusive fence and gate contractor, Iron Wood Fence and Gate.  You can visit their website or contact them for more information on your fencing needs.

You know the old saying, “everything is bigger in Texas,” well when it comes to this home’s backyard that statement is TRUE.  We have had some fun with this client over the years, transforming their gorgeous spacious acreage into a multi level sanctuary.

Sprawling throughout are various trees including; Crape Myrtle, Redbud, River Birch, Japanese Maple and Oaks.  This first vignette of plant life includes both the Japanese Maple, a Redbud along with agave plants and fountain grass.

  

As you make your way down the patio you pass through a fully bloomed white Crepe Myrtle tree and a grouping of colorful pentas and yucca plants.

We also installed the flagstone steps that lead down to the pool and cabana area.  We created a dry rock bed that spans this section for both a design element and to create a place for drain when we get our notorious Texas spring and fall storms.

      

Not to leave any space unattended we lined the pool edging with plant life as well as the natural curvature of the yard with agave, mandina, ligustrum and more.

As you continue down to the very back of the property the trees create a gorgeous screen from neighboring yards and provide shade for beds.  We’ve filled this area with fountain grass, planters, and large decorative rocks to continue the hardscape design that exists up front as well.

One last feature we are proud of is the custom log designed pergola for their covered patio.  We created this just for the client and love the tree detailing that makes it so special.
