Dallas meets Southern California

An Austin-stone residence in the Greenway Parks North area of Dallas, the backyard was devoid of character with only an outdated wood deck and converted garage studio as features. The owner, a Texas native who had moved back after years in Malibu, California, was referred by his Architect to Landscape Designer Patrick L. Boyd-Lloyd, APLD, with David Rolston Landscape Architects, to maximize the small backyard with feature's he loved from days spent in the year-round outdoor environments he'd become accustomed to: Lounge Pool, with spa jets and heater, Check; Natural-gas Firepit (no smoke here!), Check; Outdoor Screen-wall for viewing Movies, Check; Lounge and Dining Spaces, Check; Lush and Textural plantings, Check. All tied together with a low maintenance Ipe wood Deck and custom cut random rectangle Oklahoma Flagstone.
