Is this house abandoned? - Weedy mess, dirty roof. Good design just neglected.

The landscape designer planted all the plants you see here. Some of them are just small. I think he intentionally wanted it to be informal. Yes the roof has the pollen from the oak trees -- a yearly phenomenon in Austin. Thanks for your comment. --Tom Hurt

Abandoned because of little plants popping up and a "dirty roof"?? - Seriously, I'm getting sick of the "clean" approach to landscape design as dictated by architects. Those little plants popping up add charm and a lived in look. Why does everything have to be sterile? You asked if this home is being lived in and I would say yes...because it looks like it.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Amy Renea added this to Not Your Average Ranch
Create drama. The most critical aspect missing from the average ranch is a little bit of drama. In my dreams, I give my ranch drama with turrets, chimneys and grand additions. In my reality, I am inspired by designs that inject drama into an average ranch. The wood plank wall, the modern portico and the plantings give this home pizzazz, and I am simply smitten.

Accentuate the base. Try accentuating the color of your front door by using a similar color in a contrasting material around the base of your home. This tiny detail will give your ranch a visual foundation and emphasize the long, lean lines of this architectural style. You might compare this foundation line to the collar of your shirt. As your collar line creates a frame for your face, the foundation line creates a frame for your home.
