This compact town home backyard, in the Memorial area of Houston, lay unused and unsightly prior to its redesign. The space is found in a narrow gap between the garage and the house and was completely paved over with a mismatch of two paver types.
A custom design was made for this client wherein a southwest tequila theme is continued, from the adjacent family room space, out to their new open air lounge.
To reinvent the space, a wood deck with a built in planter was added as a minimally invasive solution, to bring life and a new aesthetic into the space.
The space is filled with a southwest xeric mix of plantings in stone beds with feature agaves to continue the tequila theme.
The air conditioning system is hidden with a unique wood fence and buffering vertical plantings.
An outdoor seating arrangement, with custom furniture and a decorative center piece, was designed to fit the intended theme.
To tie together the space, TDG designed a custom art piece, as a focal back drop to the new lounge area, on the newly refurbished cedar fences.
