This corner lot in the University Park section of Dallas was in need of a major landscape facelift in both the front and back. MiraVista landscaping was brought in to provide landscape design and construction services for the entire site which comprised a complete redo of the front entry sequence including a completely new driveway, approach, and front porch. A unique pool and hot tub design was planned for the back yard along with a new covered patio space complete with a fireplace, television and surround sound.
New landscape plantings soften and brighten the scene in both the front and back yards. Plantings include several Japanese Maple trees, an espaliered Magnolia, Knockout Roses, Drift Roses, Hydrangea, Chinese Fringe Flower, Holly Fern, Lantana and a mix of other perennials which add loads of color.
At this Trophy Club residence MiraVista Lansdcaping was brought in to take charge of a unique situation. This particular client had their own sketches to illustrate the grand vision they had for their backyard, and retained the MiraVista team to bring it from vision to reality. The backyard was a blank slate other than a small covered patio with a view into a very stale wall/fence combination along the back of the property. The design originally called for a flagstone extension from the existing porch out to the planned raised planter in the back. In order to tie old and new together,MiraVista took the patio one step further and created a stone overlay of the existing patio. The end result is one cohesive stone patio that looks like it was original to the house.
Large canopy trees work with multiple varieties of ornamental trees to scale down the massive façade, while massings of Azaleas, Pittosporum, Roses and other plantings soften the very linear forms of the house and walkway.
In the backyard, MiraVista resurfaced the pool deck with a stained and stamped concrete finish. Large Holly, Magnolia, and Cypress trees are used in conjunction with massings of Knockout Roses and Evergreen Shrubs and Ground Covers to provide a buffer from neighboring properties and create a sense of privacy in the backyard.
