Poth Family Ranch
Located in Center Point, Texas, this 39-acre, 19th century ranch sits on the edge of a beautiful hillside overlooking the creek and large cypress grove below. The intention of this ranch landscape design project was to bring a new residential development to the site. Correspondingly, other utilitarian structures were included, creating a centralized complex, while sustaining the rustic Texas ranch setting that makes the site so special. With the use of natural landscaping and native plants the surrounding environment was maintained. Additionally, this residential landscape design clearly enhanced the natural surrounding elements.
This ranch design had many specific challenges. Some of which included understanding and evading the flood zones of the creek. Also, a goal of the project was to make the most of the micro-climates available to battle the heat. Another aspect that needed to be considered was creating a separation between the cattle and deer from the ornamental and sustenance plantings. Lastly, another challenge included planning the space to make the most of the natural aesthetics and elevated views. The environmental responsibility to maintain this property’s natural characteristics played a significant role in the design.
A variety of amenities were added to the site to enhance the space as a whole. This included a central fire pit lounge area, vegetable garden, and shaded outdoor recreational space. Not to mention, strategically placed greenhouses and storage structures were also included to increase environmental consciousness within this property.
