TYPE OF PROJECT:

New Construction / Remodel

PROJECT BUDGET:

$150,000 - $200,000

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

This home was purchased as a new construction spec home in University Park, Texas. It was originally landscaped prior to the sell of the home, and the new owners wanted a different landscape, more suited to their personal aesthetic and lifestyle needs.  The new design included reclaimed brick and limestone paving, monochromatic planting palette, in-ground spa and fountain,  and a shaded seating area in the backyard.

FRONT YARD

Copper gas lantern sit atop brick columns and welcome guests from the street to the front entry.
The front porch is simple, elegant, understated and welcoming. Restoration Hardware zinc planters, copper gas lanterns, boxwood topiary, brick, and limestone create a comfortable palette for welcoming guests.

Guests are welcomed at curbside by antique brick columns with gas lanterns and steps leading up to the main lawn area. The paving design utilizes both antique brick and limestone to create rhythm along the walk from the street to the front porch. The landscape has a linear design in a monochromatic palette of green and white. The front architectural bay window is adorned with a massing of limelight hydrangea and a specimen Japanese Maple The front door is accented with Restoration Hardware zinc finished planters and boxwood topiary.

BACK YARD

This beautiful carved limestone fountain doubles as a heated spa. The unique Zinc-coated copper water spouts were designed and furnished by Matthew Murrey Design.

This small backyard was all about maximizing space and creating function. The main lawn area is covered in artificial turf to provide 365 days a year of mud-free use. Plus, artificial turf can also function just like a paved surface so it gave the space tons of flexibility. To extend the back porch and provide additional shade, an arbor structure was designed along the west side-yard. It utilizes the antique brick and large cedar beams. The water-feature functions both as a decorative fountain, plunge-pool, and spa. Its heated and has interior bench seats. The water-spouts were custom designed and crafted by our foundry.
