We are passionate about our work. So we created these videos to share some of our favorite designs, and to explain why Mirror Lake is known as the premier landscape architecture design/build firm in Houston.
A landscape architect is an artist whose medium happens to be the elements. Take a look at this latest project from Mirror Lake Designs, and how Michael Shawn Kelly took to his canvas.
A classic 70's subdivision pool - renovated and reimagined by Mirror Lake. After their youngest son graduated and moved out, these homeowners decided to invest in their home instead of moving out. The result is a stunning renovation of their outdated pool, complete with a beautiful travertine deck and zoysia grass terrace.
Like other artists, a landscape architect shines when confronted with certain constraints - such as this zero-lot-line property. Michael Shawn Kelly takes this limited chunk of real estate and turns it into a beautiful outdoor living space with water features, a pergola, and fire pit.
