Irrigation Installation and Stone Patio in Trophy Club: Misenhiemer Residence
At this Trophy Club residence Scapes, Inc. was brought in to take charge of a unique situation. This particular client had their own sketches to illustrate the grand vision they had for their backyard, and retained the Scapes team to bring it from vision to reality. The backyard was a blank slate other than a small covered patio with a view into a very stale wall/fence combination along the back of the property. The design originally called for a flagstone extension from the existing porch out to the planned raised planter in the back. In order to tie old and new together, Scapes took the patio one step further and created a stone overlay of the existing patio. The end result is one cohesive stone patio that looks like it was original to the house.
The focal point of the backyard is the vibrant blue bubbler fountain, which is centered in the view from the porch. A recirculating pump allows the water feature to operate smoothly even during the infamous Texas summertime watering restrictions. The feature provides visual and audio ambiance to the space. Plantings in the backyard include three Specimen Fosters Holly which help to scale down the fence/wall, along with a mixture of evergreen and deciduous plantings for multi-season interest.
A new Chinese Pistache tree will mature to provide cooling shade for the space while offering warm reddish/orange hues in the fall. There is outdoor access to the backyard along both sides of the house. Both of these transitional areas have been enhanced using flagstone pathways along with “steppable” Dwarf Mondo grass planted in between and along side the stones. A stone “wingwall” juts out from the northwest corner of the house providing privacy for this new backyard oasis
The front yard was also designed and constructed by Scapes Incorporated. The design features a blend of plants which will provide multi-season interest contained with chopped stone edging selected to compliment the facade of the house. Two large Texas Red Oak trees were also added to the landscape.
We researched Landscaping in Dallas and among several names we found Scapes, Incorporated. After meeting with 3 other companies we called Scapes to get one last proposal for our landscaping project. From beginning to end, Russell and the Scapes installation team far exceeded our expectations. In the future we would look to one landscaping company to provide services for us, and that company is Scapes Incorporated
