Graves Residence – Dallas, TX

Graves Residence – Dallas, TX


Scapes Inc. was brought in to provide landscape design and construction services for the entire site at this North Dallas residence. The landscaping was completely redone in the front of the house softening and adding texture to the lengthy front facade. Plantings in the front yard are shade loving and include Specimen Foster’s Holly, Hydrangeas, Holly Fern, and Liriope among others.

The side courtyard has been transformed into an outdoor kitchen and entertaining space. It features a built in gas grill, flagstone paving mixed with decomposed granite, seating areas, and plantings to soften the space. Plantings in the courtyard carry the theme of the front yard, but added some Pink Flowering Dwarf Oleander which brings a unique look to the space.

The pool courtyard is truly an outdoor oasis for the home owner. While the majority of the courtyard is blessed with ample shade from towering Oaks, a portion of the space is a wide-open sun deck. The pool deck is finished in a stained and stamped concrete which compliments the walls of the numerous planters constructed out of natural stone. The large existing Oak trees are complimented by a mixture of evergreen and deciduous plant material including Roses, Hydrangeas, Pittosporum and others. Tucked in a niche close to the waters edge a European Fan Palm surrounded by yellow flowering Lantana. serves the focal point of the pool area.
