This is the front view showcases a beautiful landscape design that was created to withstand the Texas Heat and provide cover for the home. A xeriscape with crushed rock and organized plants create eye-catching appeal. A raised planter features bamboo that gives an attractive striped effect to the view toward the white exterior walls.
To give life to the backyard space, designers added lime green and coral accents, making the backyard bright and modern. Pebbles, decomposed granite and colorful plants add texture and visual interest to the cool, new space.
When the homeowner, a professional artist, moved into this home, the backyard space was visually unappealing and dysfunctional, so designers gave the yard a new look, maximizing the small space with sectional seating areas on both the hardscape and desert lounge areas, giving the homeowner a blank canvas to foster her creative inspiration.
The hardscape for this outdoor retreat gives the homeowners the perfect venues to entertain. In one section, an outdoor dining set leaves the perfect space for al fresco dining, while in another section, bright, modern furniture gives the homeowners a spot for a casual gathering.
It can be tough to design a long and narrow plot of land -- and to maximize usage of space. Here, the designer added a tiered system to create a sense of dimension and order needed when incorporating so many spaces and elements. The curved walkway softens the block-like plot, and several garden and flower beds liven up the yard.
