Hosack Residence – Dallas, TX:
Fresh curb appeal was the order of the day for this North Dallas residence when they contacted Scapes, Incorporated to completely redo the front landscape of their house. The Scapes design team met with the homeowners to review to discuss their goals and budget for the project, and to help develop the scope of work. Scapes provided services ranging from pruning the existing trees, to new plantings, irrigation, and stone work.
The existing Live Oaks needed to undergo some selective pruning in order to promote healthier new growth, and to allow a little more sunlight to make it through the dense canopy. Doing this has allowed the turf grass in the front yard to develop a much thicker and lush growth.
The front walk was spruced up with the addition of a custom stone enclosure for the mailbox. The stone chosen to face the structure matches the stone used for the new front porch and entry area. The existing concrete porch was overlaid in flagstone along with the front steps. The transition area between the drive and porch was demolished and redone in flagstone to match. The front porch itself was dressed up with a stone privacy wall, given definition to the space of not only the porch, but completely changing the look of the front of the house.
New landscape beds were created with soft curves, and have been accentuated with stone edging which compliments the new stone elsewhere on the project. New ornamental tree plantings include a Chinese Pistachio, Oak Leaf Holly, and Japanese Maple. An assortment of evergreen, and deciduous shrub plantings now fill the landscape beds creating a soft, lush, and colourful buffer to the front of the house. Azaleas, drift roses, ornamental grasses, and dwarf fringe flower set the tone, and are accented nicely by pockets of color including Mexican Petunia.
