The Castle House
Residential LandscapingOklahoma City, OK
This client wanted something unique - as you can tell from the photographs. They wanted their home to look like it was out in a field, as it would have in the old days. This is why we chose to use native grasses as an anchor for our landscape but also wanted to incorporate Taylor Junipers (tall slender Juniper trees) to give an evergreen look. This helps resemble what you would see for the landscape in Europe in olden times.
This house has fun details like a draw bridge, dry creek riverbed to resemble a moat, fully-automated sprinkler system, boulder retaining walls, mortared stone edging, landscape lighting both on the house and built into the driveway which lights up at night, faux paver/chariot broken-down road to be made to look abandoned, and a custom boulder staircase.
With over 1500 man hours spent building this project, lots of love and attention to detail went into to making this client's dreams come true!
