At this house in a quiet neighborhood in Carrollton, the client hired Scapes to completely redo the existing front yard and backyard landscapes.
It was an overgrown and outdated planting scheme the needed to be revamped in order to bring a fresh look to the front of the house. In addition to the planting issues, the retaining wall, and steps and front approach to the house were spawling, cracking, and in general disrepair. The existing retaining wall and steps were reengineered and rebuilt to stand up to the geologic conditions of the site which had wreaked havoc on the old wall. The approach at the front door was redone as well and finished in the same flagstone as the retaining wall. An existing Pine tree frames one corner of the house, while a Crape Myrtle was planted on the other, and a specimen Little Gem Magnolia offsets the large windows on the front of the house. A large Red Oak was added to the front yard and serves to anchor the improvements to the front yard. The balance of the new landscape beds are planted with a mix of evergreen and deciduous plant materials including Azaleas, Hydrangea, dwarf Chinese Fringe Flower and Drift Rose. Nandina and Lantana bring an additional splash of color and texture to the front of the beds. The final touch to the front yard was the turfgrass itself being entirely replaced.
The backyard was completely redone as well with improvements including a flagstone patio and seat wall, wrought iron fencing, and all new landscape plantings. The backyard plantings are anchored by a series of Holly Trees, and caped on the edges by new Crape Myrtles. The groundplane is planted to Drift Rose, dwarf Variegated Pittosporum, ornamental grasses, Liriope, and seasonal color.
We are thrilled with the landscaping work that has been completed at our home. The landscape design and installation services that we received from Scapes, Incorporated has brought our property back to life. We have learned that proper landscaping in Dallas and its surrounding areas can be tricky, especially here in the Carrollton area due to the native soils. Scapes took all of this into account when redesigning the retaining walls, and other hardscapes around our home. It can be a challenge to find a landscaping company, or company of any sort, that operates as effectively and with as much integrity as Scapes, Incorporated.
