A pergola topped with a bushy climbing vine creates a defined entrance to the backyard of this Dallas, Texas, home. A meandering stone path leads guests through this English-style garden that's layered with greenery.
This yellow ranch home boasts a backyard with a staggered deck walkway that leads the way to the back door entrance. Stone gravel and evergreen landscaping are used throughout the yard, while a small pond features a unique floating stone patio complete with an outdoor dining table and chairs.
A new lawn and the imaginative blending of shrubs and flowering plants radiate maximum curb appeal in this design which features a subtle but alluring detail – a rustic side entrance to the back yard on the far left.
The foyer opens directly onto this grand staircase in classic Colonial style. Traditionally, the hallway behind the stairs would lead to another room. But here, it goes to the back yard. French doors let sunlight into what would otherwise be dark, closed off space.
The addition of a small entrance, new French doors and a brick patio with a mahogany pergola makes this backyard feel open and inviting — perfect for entertaining guests. The French doors and entrance provide easy access into the expanded kitchen and living room.
