An Artful outdoor living space in Irving TX

These Irving Texas homeowners had an artist’s canvas backyard. This beautiful home was much deserving of an artfully-designed space that spoke to the clients’ outdoor living aspirations. Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake is pleased to have been called to the task of creating their dream backyard design.


Very often, our clients call on us to re-create an existing outdoor living design. This family, however, had a spacious and wide-open backyard, which yearned for beautiful and usable outdoor amenities. Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake worked with these clients to create a covered patio cabana, pergola, and custom softscapes and hardscapes to create a true backyard paradise.

Free-standing cabana and pergola designs

If you are in search of a unique outdoor living design, Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake can help. We are the area’s premier custom outdoor living design and build firm. Your design will be unlike any other!

— Custom cabana in Irving, TX.

Both the cabana and pergola were created using 8”x8” cedar posts, and all cedar construction, painted in a rich chocolate pudding color. The 19’x16’ cabana has an open gable roof with king truss details. The 16’x7’ pergola includes a Polygal cover for weather protection. The stately columns are anchored with beautiful Oklahoma chopped stone coping and dark leader's stone tops. The pergola design was custom-built to hang the homeowner’s hammock — if you look closely you will see the hooks — how unique!

The interior of the cabana includes a custom cedar TV wall and cedar mantel.

The ceiling is finished with pine tongue and groove and includes recessed lighting and a ceiling fan. Both the cedar wall and ceiling were stained in dark walnut.

Hardscapes and softscapes

Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake provided all new softscapes/landscaping. We planted trees, shrubs, and plants, including Texas Mountain Laurel, pink Kaleidoscope Abelia, Sunshine Ligustrum, Asian Jasmine, and more. We installed the paver patio surface, including the stepping pads leading to the home. The paver color is Urbana Danville Beige, which matches the pavers previously installed in front of the home. Due to the slope of the yard, we also built a 19’ seat wall on the backside of the cabana.

— Pavers and smooth river stone hardscapes adorn the space.

The homeowners added a garden fountain, which creates the perfect focal point between the spaces.

Archadeck of NE Dallas-Southlake installed an additional hardscape wall at the back of the yard, which gives the space a finished look and provides additional seating for entertaining. We used stone finishes that match the cabana and pergola columns.
