Landscaping Your New Home in North Dallas
As one of the fastest growing areas in the United States, North Dallas has seen thousands of new homes being built each year. With new homeowners coming from around the world, our local landscaping and North Texas plant life might seem foreign, but residents seem to care a lot about landscaping new homes in North Dallas.
Some parts of our country consider landscaping to be a tree in the front yard and maybe even a vegetable garden in the back, while our residents demand to see new home landscaping that offers incredible curb appeal and reflects the style of their neighborhood and property.
What to Expect with New Home Construction Landscaping
When you have a new home built in far North Dallas, you can expect the builder-grade new home construction landscaping plans to offer few choices.
Most of the standard landscaping plans offered for the front of a home will likely include between 1-2 large shade trees and at least one garden bed filled with an assortment of very small evergreen shrubs and topped with hardwood mulch.
Unfortunately, there is typically no landscaping offered at all for the backyard…just a small concrete patio slab.

Front Landscaping Plan New Home
Front yard landscaping plans for a new home is often just the bare minimum. To enhance the look of the front yard, most will upgrade plants in the existing garden beds and create new landscape beds filled with a variety of plant types native to Texas along with spring looming annual flowers. You can also showcase your existing garden bed by installing a stone retaining wall or edging.
New Home Backyard Landscaping
While landscaping the front yard simply involves altering the existing builder-grade design, backyard landscaping is almost always more complex because you’re starting from scratch.
After deciding how you might want to use your backyard, consider hiring a professional landscape designer to work with you on creating an overall plan for the backyard space. Most designers can create plans that include new garden beds with plant layouts, extended patio spaces, walking paths and outdoor kitchens.
