Project Summary

CHALLENGE

These West Texas homeowners had a backyard lawn, but it was too hot and sunny to enjoy and took too much water to keep alive during the summer months.

SOLUTIONS

Home Outside replaced the lawn with modern concrete patios and stepper walkways, set in a sea of walkable gravel. Structural drought-tolerant plantings define areas, accented by shade trees to make the outdoor living space a fun, beautiful, and cozy place to hang out all year round.

Precast concrete unit pavers with gravel joints extend from the back door to create a large new patio for gilling and dining.
Geometrically arranged pavers connect garden rooms throughout the back yard to form a walking loop.
A new shaded patio located in the corner of the yard is a perfect place to gather around a fire pit, to enjoy the warm evenings in the shade of the existing mature trees.
Linear beds of drought-tolerant grasses define the edges of the space, while specimen agave add textural contrast.
Two specimen multi-stemmed trees cast dappled shade.
Plants strategically placed here to screen views of the existing air conditioning unit.
A tall green hedge at the far end of the property adds additional privacy to the back yard.
