The Falls is a new construction community developed by McCaleb Homes. This neighborhood community is located within the award-winning Edmond Public School districts like Chisholm Elementary School, Cimarron Middle School, and Memorial High school. Many families choose this community because it’s also far enough away from the city to be considered the countryside.
With this homeowner’s project, our goal was to enhance the natural features of The Falls’ surrounding landscape. As with most new construction projects, this one required a complete landscape makeover with an additional retaining wall and lighting features. The backyard had a steep slope which caused safety hazards for the family. We created new, more usable levels of space while reducing the slope’s steepness with a custom stone retaining wall. With just a few plantings and custom lighting features, the whole family can enjoy their yard safely for years to come!
We’ve done several home landscaping projects within The Falls community and hope to continue our work for future projects.
The Integrity House home was included in the Street of Dreams in 2018 and is located in The Falls neighborhood community with residential landscape design by Nelson Landscaping.
For this residential landscaping project, we provided landscaping, stone edging, boulders, state-of-the-art irrigation system, and drainage. The landscaping included several large trees in the front yard as well as trees, shrubs, and seasonal flowers along the front and sides of the home. It was a joy working on this Street of Dreams property and extending the beauty of the home! The backyard backs up to the neighborhood pond with a perfect view of the gorgeous fountain we installed in the pond.
Truly a work of art from all sides, this newly landscaped home in The Falls is what dreams are made of. Featured in the 2018 Cascade Street of Dreams, this serene estate by McCaleb Homes was viewed by over 22,000 people. One of the most remarkable features includes a custom-designed prayer garden. This sanctuary of space boasts a gated courtyard with a stone seclusion wall, concrete slab patio, and durable turf. It’s lined with landscaping which brings balance to the space.
In the pool area, you’ll find a custom boulder water feature, raised poolside flowerbeds, and boulder retaining walls. Landscape lighting spotlights this picturesque setting from all the right angles and a smart irrigation system keeps the landscape lush throughout the seasons while soft fescue sod throughout the estate melds the landscaping from all sides into a seamless package.
We were fortunate to have landscaped 4 homes that were part of the Street of Dreams project in 2018. Matteson Homes built this beautiful modern/contemporary home, and he requested we do the same for the landscape portion.
We decided to incorporate modern-looking pots and plants into the actual flower beds and highlight them with landscape lighting. We also used a lot of decorative rock in the beds instead of mulch to harden up the feel of the landscape, giving it that ultra-clean contemporary home landscaping look. We installed the most efficient sprinkler system on the market, utilizing a “smart controller” sprinkler controller that syncs with weather.com to make changes daily and even hourly. This lets the system know how much to water on any given day. With the crazy weather in Oklahoma, you may have 70º temps on a Wednesday and 10º temps by the weekend. This smart controller will automatically adjust watering times or even shut the system down if it gets too cold. It’s so smart that it will even add additional watering time if it is windy outside (which causes the water from the irrigation system to evaporate faster). It was a fun project for one of the best contemporary and modern home builders in the Oklahoma City metro!
