This modern home, nestled in an old Preston Hollow neighborhood, required the expertise of a Preston Hollow landscape architect to ensure the exterior spaces complemented the beautifully executed interior spaces by Catherine Albritton & Daphne Kuykendall. We mirrored the colors and existing artwork from inside the house with colored pots outside to create beautiful symmetry, embodying the aesthetic principles of Dallas landscape architecture.

The owners also desired eye-catching water features with a gentle, yet noticeable sound quality, both at the front entrance to welcome visitors, and at the rear to continue the effect no matter the window from which it was viewed. The centerpiece of this unique water sculpture was sourced in England and installed by Harold Leidner Company, a renowned Preston Hollow landscape design company.

To avoid the maintenance issues related to a traditional pool, special attention was paid to the water feature’s ease of maintenance by using the most sophisticated circulation and filtration systems available, which allowed the owners to travel freely without worry.

It was a pleasure working on a home whose architecture was crafted by SHM, then built by LRO. The project, which took about eight months to design and build the fountains, decks, and landscape, was a testament to the capabilities of the top landscape architects in Dallas, ensuring every detail was meticulously planned and executed to create a cohesive and enchanting environment in old Preston Hollow.
