Visit a Texas Backyard Designed for Lounging and Playing
In this episode of Houzz TV Live, landscape and pool designer Randy Angell gives a virtual tour of his client’s backyard in Plano, Texas. Angell updated the once-empty rectangle space to include zones for lounging, swimming and playing. A raised deck features an ipe wood shade structure and fire feature. A shallow swimming pool was designed with volleyball in mind. A large spa can be used as a small pool for kids. And a putting green offers an opportunity to improve one’s short game. Angell also discusses how synthetic grass can help soften hardscaping and shares tips for elements to consider when working with a pro on Houzz to design an in-ground pool.
