The clients wanted some clean and modern additions to their home. Two arbors were built, one as a invitation over the main entry as well as a shelter for an outdoor kitchen. A pool was added to accentuate the views of the lake from the site along with a fire table to warm up the space.
The owners of this Arts and Crafts-style home needed a backyard entertaining space to complement the architecture. A new arbor structure and trellis screens views of parking and sets off the stone patio, creating privacy and a quiet oasis for dining and relaxing.
New Cedar and Steel Arbor that ties the house in with a very large existing pool. Created shadows and some shade to bring down the water temperature in the blazing Texas Sun.
Here, a sloping side-yard that sent runoff under the house was terraced into usable entertainment spaces. Borrowed park views of White Rock Lake add a sense of spaciousness to a seating area centered around a hearth and clean modern cistern fountain.
This family desired a modern upgrade to add some personality to their home. A courtyard was added off the porch for a comfortable spot to relax outdoors. The old walkway was sloped and hazardous. It was replaced with sleek, concrete pads that lead right under a lightweight arbor. The old planting scheme was one-dimensional and without any variety or life. The new selection of plants add depth and texture to the landscape.
