Landscape Spotlight: Michelle & Craig’s Family Friendly North Plano Project

Michelle and Craig contacted us to help reimagine their large, open North Plano backyard. The couple had a good idea of what they wanted in their project. It was essential to keep as much of their large lawn as possible so their six and nine-year-old children could enjoy the space (or a pool could be installed in the future.) They also wanted to create an area in their landscape for a vegetable garden and space for Craig’s mower and tools. They also wanted to soften their fence line, create some privacy from the neighbors, and upgrade their outdoor patio space.

As you can see in the before and after photos, the design will help cover their expansive fence with plants that will mature and screen the neighbor’s homes, creating a sense of privacy in the backyard. To soften the extensive fence, we used a combination of savannah holly, needlepoint hollies, and abelias.

Michelle and Craig also wanted more outdoor living space, so we expanded the patio area with a new stamped concrete area that looks beautiful. Surrounding it, we used compact nandinas, lambs’ ear, irises, and dwarf Mexican petunias to complement and frame the patio.

I want to thank Michelle and Craig for trusting us with their project and for taking the time to send me the following note about our team.

“I’m certain you know this already, but I believe you have some great employees in Hannah, Juan, and Manny. They’re very friendly, welcoming of any questions or concerns, and were very professional throughout the entire 3-week job. I’m not sure one could ask for better ambassadors or representatives of your business.”  Michelle and Craig
