A Shady Barren Landscape Gets a Natural Makeover

When the large, established trees in this backyard landscape began to shade and weaken the once lush lawn, the homeowner knew it was time for a change. We strategically replaced the sun-loving grass with landscape beds that followed the patterns of shade and then filled them with low maintenance shade-loving shrubs, perennials and groundcovers. We also created walk-able pathways with natural stone pavers and gave this busy family a serene stone patio on which to relax. The lovely pergola will offer even more shade in the summer months. This landscape filled with tough shade-loving plants creates a natural woodland feel in this once barren backyard. Growing healthy grass under large shade trees is never easy. However, we have many wonderful and beautiful solutions when it's time for your lawn to be replaced.


Basic Backyard Transformation: Use patios and pergolas to create new outdoor living space

While there was a pre-existing patio in this backyard, it wasn't serving the needs of this active Dallas family. They wanted a WOW space to entertain family and friends and relax in through summer. We decided to remove the existing patio and completely remodel the entire space. The new entertaining area includes a sunken stone patio to dine and lounge in surrounded by a stone walkway that adds depth and character. The natural stone patio was extended to surround the built in grill. To provide shade and complete the look of the space we added a custom built pergola. Custom shade cloth or natural vines can be added to create more shade and individual character. This backyard is summer ready! Design by Laura Tyson

Townhouse Transformation

The backyard space of this townhouse had a lot of potential, but the owners just weren't sure what to do with it! We transformed the space from neglected to a natural retreat. The owners are gardeners and so requested we leave open space for them to "plant and putter".
