This single-family home in the Meyerland area of Houston, Texas desired a new, aesthetic solution to outdoor living with residential privacy. This landscape design process offered the ability to block the views from the home’s patio and pool area to the neighbors’ houses and unsightly utilities, while bringing the feeling of a tropical vacation into the everyday lives of the family.
A new, vibrant, tropical planting scheme was designed to tie the pool and planting beds closely together, instead of unused, high maintenance, lawn space giving the ambiance of a tropical resort in their own backyard.
Many rooms for outdoor entertainment and recreation were added to fit the needs of a variety of seasons and weather conditions while being more climate conscious in this residential outdoor design. A new deck was added with a new pergola to add a comfortable gathering area out of the sun and a space for outdoor grilling providing a secluded, private area for entertainment.
An extension was added to the patio space that existed to tie together the two spaces and create a more open feeling with flow. The newly added outdoor room is separated from the yard with planter walls adding the utility of a home herb garden close to the grill and kitchen and engineered a design for privacy and enhanced this suburban landscape’s environmental responsibility.
