Moving right along sharing more from one of our favorite landscape installations properties, we shared with you the front yard of this stunning Fort Worth home a couple of weeks ago, and now it’s time to highlight their backyard as well. First of all, can you say garden with a view! If I lived here you bet you’d find me sitting in that glider staring out at the water taking in my surroundings. For a space like this, which is long and a little narrow, it was super important to create varying heights and landscape levels to maximum the space.
Dwarf mondo keeps a nice clean border along the house and in the raised beds. It’s an evergreen you rarely have to trim and it keeps soil from washing onto your hardscape. Then we also have a spiral boxwood centerpiece to add, which is very low maintenance. For an added bit of color we also planted caladiums and some periwinkle annuals that will stay until the first frost.
At the very end of the raised bed, we planted azalea bushes, which produce a beautiful pink flower multiple times throughout the year.
One more bed at the edge of the property completes the look and creates a clear dividing line between their house and their neighbors’.
This fountain water feature adds an artist element to the grass accent bed. We sell a variety of these fountains in the garden shop.
You know we love a good hibiscus, especially in pots, and they look great next to the seated glider that overlooks the lake.
Did you know we do hardscape as well as landscaping? Here we built a travertine patio to extend their patio, providing a more elegant walkway and more space for another seating and dining area.
Here you can also see the stone retaining wall we built with a leuders cap on top. We then built stairs leading up to their patio to give the space multi levels. Prior to our design, the home had a Dorr flagstone that wasn’t a great quality for the stature of the home.
We also brought in the Plant hanger to the far left, a spagnjm moss succulent planter (also sold in the nursery). These ready container garden holds moisture in way better than the standard plastic bucket hangers. For a fun and colorful added touch, the pink flamingo (also from our home decor shop) really adds a pop.
And what patio would be complete without carrying the plant life up to the seating area in an array of pots and planters.
We love putting spiral boxwoods in potters to create height and a focal point that’s very low maintenance.
You know how we feel about live edge furniture! If you haven’t seen this post, or checked out the many designs we have at the nursery you are missing out. This coffee table came from our decor shop and really fits beautifully with the modern rustic space. We have a couple more of these at the shop, just waiting to complete your space.
And we can never forget the side of the house, that leads from the front to the back. With those areas being so stunning, the walk into the backyard has to be just as beautiful so it all flows. To the left, Tree Form Savannah’s soften up the wall without covering up the stone work, which is such a beautiful detail to the home. To the right, an Evergreen screen creates a privacy wall and blocks the view of the neighbor’s house without takkng up space in the yard.
And what home wouldn’t love to have a garden greenhouse of their own. We added the finishing touches to this shed by using reclaimed wood to give it unique detailing. The evergreens to each side frame the house and really show that every inch of this yard has been carefully thought out.
