Bagget Residence – Dallas, TX
At this house Scapes Inc. was brought in to provide landscape design and construction services on a pretty large scale. The site encompasses a large corner lot with several feet of grade change from the house down to the street. Scapes created flagstone steps and walkway in order provide an elgant pedestrian approach up the front door. A series of terraced planting areas were created by adding retaining walls built out of stone which compliments the flagstone paving. The house is framed by several majestic Live Oaks, along with a very large Red Oak and Magnolia tree also located in the front yard. To help scale down the house and canopy trees several inermediate understory trees were incorporated into the design. These included Japanese Maple, Crape Myrtle, Redbud, Podocarpus, and Dogwood. All with varying characteristics including flower interest, interesting bark, and in the case of the Podocarpus evergreen interest.
With all the existing canopy shade the plant pallette was chosen to work within the shade, but also be adapted to the areas that do receive sunlight. Evergreen, and deciduous shrubs are used which provide multi-season interest through foliage, flowers, and texture. The palette includes Azalea, Chinese Fringe Flower, Nandina, large flowring Hydrangeas, and Liriope among others. Pockets of seasonal color were used in key areas to provide a vibrant splash of color.
Scapes Incorporated stands among the top companies for Landscaping in Dallas in our view. Their landscape design was well thought out, and the coordination of the construction phase was well orchestrated. The professionalism and integrity with which Scapes conducts business will definitely have us calling the next time we are in need of a landscping company
