This project, designed by Architect Richard Davis and constructed by Home Builder Mark Rose, provides a classical updated look as a way to provide a wonderful place for families and social entertaining. Warm and inviting interior spaces were designed by Lisa Luby Ryan. The exterior outdoor living area includes elements such as a firepit, a beautiful pool with privacy seen only in a resort that interlinks with a gymnasium. When you are working out, you have a beautiful vision of the custom pool design and fire pit in the back garden. Engaging a Dallas landscape architect was pivotal in ensuring that the outdoor spaces were not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional and conducive for social entertaining. Our role as a Dallas landscape design company was to ensure that every outdoor element, from the pool to the firepit, was designed and constructed to create a cohesive and inviting outdoor environment. With our expertise in Dallas landscape architecture, we were able to integrate the gymnasium and outdoor living areas in a way that allowed them to complement and enhance each other. Being recognized as one of the top landscape architects in Dallas, our team was dedicated to ensuring that every detail, from the privacy of the pool to the view from the gymnasium, was meticulously planned and executed, creating a resort-like ambiance in a residential setting.

Shores Landscape Designs - Harold Leidner Landscape Architects

Shores Project: A Highland Park Landscape Architect Showcase

At Harold Leidner Landscape Architects, we are dedicated to delivering state-of-the-art custom landscaping services. Our team meticulously planned and executed the construction of the pool, spa, fire pit, security gates, motor courts, drainage, lighting, custom paving, and modern garden design. The result for the Shores project is a residential setting with a resort-like ambiance.

Custom Pool and Spa

Our designs incorporated elements that evoke a vacation-like atmosphere, providing relaxation and rejuvenation right at home. We utilized strategic landscaping, fencing, and layout planning to create a private sanctuary for you and your family to enjoy without interruption.

We integrated the pool and spa areas with an adjoining gymnasium, offering a holistic approach to health and leisure. Our designs focused on incorporating features such as lighting, landscaping, and surroundings that elevate the overall ambiance and functionality of your space. From the initial consultation to the final touches, we ensured that every aspect of the design and construction aligned with the Shores vision and surpassed expectations.

Custom Fire Pit Construction

Our experts bring creativity and contemporary flair to the table, ensuring that your outdoor space becomes a focal point for relaxation and entertainment. We considered the overall landscape of the Shores home, ensuring that the fire pit blended beautifully with the surroundings, resulting in a cohesive and visually pleasing outdoor space.

We incorporated additional features such as seating furniture, lighting, and custom paving elements to ensure that the fire pit becomes a versatile and functional centerpiece for outdoor gatherings.

Modern Custom Garden Design

Our integrated landscape approach focuses on creating a cohesive visual appeal that complements the overall style of each property. We strategically placed foliage, pathways, and structures to create a cohesive connection between the garden and the architecture.

We considered the fire pit as a focal point and incorporated it into the garden design flawlessly. By balancing the fire pit’s aesthetics with the garden layout and using elements like plantations and lighting, we enhanced its appeal and created a cohesive outdoor space.

We designed gardens that not only look stunning but also serve various purposes, such as relaxation areas, entertainment spaces, or zones for physical activity. These gardens highlight the beauty of the architecture and amenities like pools and gym. Discover our custom landscaping and garden design services.
