Portfolio: Canepa Residence

The Canepas contacted us for an efficient, clean modern landscape design for their busy corner lot house.

The Canepas contacted us for an efficient, clean modern landscape design for their busy corner lot house. They wanted a stark white limestone, a dramatic custom welded metal planter to distinguish them from their neighbors who share the same address, and some work in the backyard to make the space more enjoyable and usable. Due to the amount of shade in the back we used St Augustine, the only sod in Central Texas that will take substantial amounts of shade.

In the front we used a clean Tejas Black Gravel pathway with dramatic large 2’ by 4’ slabs that contrast beautifully. For some privacy near their front door we used a non invasive clumping bamboo for fast growing evergreen privacy.

Plants that were used in this design install:

1. Alphonse Karr Bamboo
2. Mediterranean Fan Palm
3. Variegated Ginger
4. Pride Of Barbados
5. Century Plant
6. Prickly Pear
7. Mexican Bush Sage
8. Bulbine
