Popular Amenities in Dallas
Here are some of the most commonly requested features for Dallas backyards.
Dallas residents have the luxury of great weather and a swimming pool is the perfect backyard feature to beat the heat. Tilly designs your yard holistically so each outdoor feature works together within your outdoor space. Whether you want a small container pool, plunge pool, cocktail pool, inground pool, or an over the top infinity edge pool, our talented landscape designers will make sure your backyard pool fits within your landscape design plan and with your garden style.
A backyard outdoor kitchen has been a hot feature amongst our Dallas homeowners. Our landscape design team can help with outdoor kitchen design ideas from a basic gas grilling area to a high end kitchen with an outdoor cooking prep area, outdoor fridge, serving area and more. Outdoor kitchen design is key to make sure it’s accessible to the house, the outdoor dining area, has shade, and much more!
Low Maintenance Design
With watering restrictions and deep freezes being top of mind in Dallas, we know the homeowner’s need plants that can tolerate the unique Dallas climate. Our landscape designers can create a beautiful landscape that is filled with native and drought resistant plants. A low maintenance yard doesn’t mean gravel and concrete, it means smart decisions and placement so your plants will thrive.
Fire Pit Areas
A backyard fire pit is a feature that can be used every season in Dallas - whether its s’mores in the summer or entertaining in the winter. We love a great outdoor fire pit table or destination yard fire pit tucked away in the backyard. Our team can help you create the perfect backyard fire pit that maximizes the use of your outdoor space and compliments your overall backyard landscape design.
Popular Plants in Dallas
Your landscape designer will have a deep understanding of what plants work in the Dallas area. Tilly encourages homeowner’s to focus on native plants that create a sustainable design. Some of our favorite Dallas options include:
Bald Cypress (Taxodium distichum)
This southern native is extremely tough and can tolerate a variety of soil types, from swampy to dry. This is a great deciduous canopy tree that provides shade in the spring and summer with leaflets that turn a beautiful rust color in the fall.
Vitex (Vitex agnus-castus)
A hard working ornamental tree, the Vitex provides both structure and color to a landscape design plan. With blooms very similar to a Lilac, the vitex is a great option for adding pollinator friendly plants to a colorful garden.
Desert Willow (Chilopsis linearis)
Categorized as both a large shrub and a small ornamental tree, the Desert Willow boasts delicate pink to purple blooms. The branching pattern often twists and turns to create a beautiful structure, even in the colder months.
Dwarf Yaupon Holly (Ilex vomitoria ‘nana’)
This highly versatile shrub provides evergreen structure to the garden and pops of color with red winter berries. The natural growth pattern stays compact and tidy, making it a very low-maintenance addition to the landscape.
Frogfruit (Phyla nodiflora)
Frogfruit is a very low maintenance (and evergreen in mild temperatures) ground cover that is a great option for pollinator gardens. The tiny white blooms sprinkled in the green foliage make this a good option for rock gardens or drought tolerant landscapes.
Turk‘s Cap (Malvaviscus arboreus var. drummondii)
Adapting to many different sun and soil conditions, Turk’s Cap is a hard-working perennial with a long blooming season. Both the flowers and the fruit make this a great plant to include to attract wildlife and pollinators to the garden.

Native plants and water conservation are always top of mind for Dallas landscape designs. Through Tilly’s affiliation with the National Wildlife FederationTM, we encourage the use of native plants, which help our ecosystem by being primed for the existing environment’s conditions and being a wildlife refuge for birds, bees, butterflies and other essential insects. Water wise plant selections are key to a successful landscape design whether you are in Dallas, New York or California. Drought tolerant and native plant material are going to be more successful in naturalizing to the ever-increasing temperatures and dry conditions that have become commonplace and are the best way to ensure that your garden remains low maintenance.
