This brand new construction was in need of a landscape to soften and shape the wide, spacious lot. The back of the house is full of floor-to-ceiling windows, so the pool and spa serve as perfect focal points to lead the eye outside. Planters delegate various outdoor living spaces, adding texture and depth.
This home had a complete renovation. To match the new house, the clients wanted a clean and fresh landscape as an accompaniment. A pool was added along with fountains to keep the sound of running water a constant feature. A lush variety of foliage greets all who approach the front door.
This vastness of the site was a great opportunity to give this residence a secluded retreat feel, with wide porch and luxurious swimming pool fit for a spa resort.
O’Neil Ford’s Texas Modern at 3201 Wendover is on the National Register of Historic Places. With 10 acres lovingly restored from an overgrown tangle to a myriad of trails and meadows, it’s been described as “a meditative wonderland.” Photography courtesy of Jenifer McNeil Baker
The landscape compliments an elegant English cottage-style home with lush planting surrounding a manicured lawn. Water features, such as a fountain and a pool, appeals to the serenity of the space with a touch of sound and pop of blue color. While the pool is contemporary in style, it does not detract from the venerable classic scheme of the home.
