A small grouping of barrel chairs and loveseat create a little spot to stop and enjoy the gardens. Lush lawns and mulch walkways weave throughout the cedar grove, creek and limestone ledges of this Dallas, Tex., property.
Large stone pavers spaced throughout the grassy backyard create a contemporary, geometric walkway. Stacked stone archways lend an Old World feel to the home and line the covered patio. Ivy-covered columns and elegant landscaping add to the traditional atmosphere of the outdoor space.
From the garage entry, a stone path leads around the house to a landscaped backyard and an outdoor seating area. The home's landscaping coordinates with its architecture to provide seamless transitions between all spaces, both exterior and interior.
Who wouldn't want to spend their afternoon underneath that awning, inhaling the scent of citrus? When they need a little fresh air, guests can step out onto this back patio, take a seat in the wooden chair and enjoy the sight and smell of the orange trees overhead.
This private pool house, located just steps away from the main home, features a playroom with an indoor/outdoor feel. Large sliding doors open to the lawn area with a retaining wall and hedge dividing the pool from the backyard.
The back of the house is just as lovely as the front, with more hedges and flowers decorating the yard's natural slope. Balconies in the distance encourage the owners to soak up cool breezes and views of this outdoor space at sunset.
The back of this home is just as lovely as the front, thanks to a large pool, lush green lawn and thoughtful landscaping by Surrounds Landscape Architecture + Construction. Back here, the owners can swim a few laps or recline in chairs right by the water.
