When it comes to style, we often look to the stars – Hollywood stars that is. In a recent article in People magazine, we got a glimpse into some of the most stunning backyard spaces around, which made us wonder what landscape star style do you have? Check out our list of favorites below and you decide!
Some Like It Hot!
Do you enjoy the feel of a warm, toasty fire on a cool evening? Perhaps with a group of friends, or just on your own, sipping on your favorite beverage. Then you and country singer Maren Morris enjoy a fire pit, which was her one must have.
“The key to deciding on a specialized feature like a fire pit is to ensure it aligns with the style of the home as well as the personality of the client,” said Marc Funderburk, president of LandPatterns, LLC. “Whether it’s an open concept or an outdoor room, it’s important to consider the desired outcome to achieve the best result.”
Breathe the Fresh Air – In Luxury
You really enjoy the outdoors but prefer it to have a bit of your style and a lot of comfort? Then you and American Horror Story actor Cheyenne Jackson have something in common. He really wanted to be in nature, which is not an easy task in the middle of Los Angeles. However, he can enjoy the views of surrounding canyons from his stylishly appointed deck, an option you can certainly give yourself for your own home through sophisticated landscape design.
“The trick to an outdoor deck of any size is to design it so that it looks like it has always been a part of the home,” said Marc. “Then it becomes a simple matter of choosing furniture and appointments that align with the home and the style of the client.”

Small Spaces with Big Impact
When you think of wide open spaces, you don’t think of New York. Yet Amy Schumer has managed to get that open feel in her rooftop patio / garden for her and her guests to enjoy. If you have a small space, you can maximize is through landscape design architecture so that brings you happiness!
“Small spaces bring a set of challenges that can be overcome with the right design focus,” said Marc. “We believe that use of color, materials, plant life and a good feel for the client’s desired use of the space provides a winning result for those with a smaller space.”
Come on In! The Water’s Fine!
Speaking of fine, Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan Tatum recently purchased a new home with a lovely pool and hot tub. If diving into the deep end is your thing, then you and the Tatum’s have that in common – a love of water and great landscape design!
“Pools are certainly a part of many of our Dallas Fort Worth client’s backyards,” said Marc. “When developing a landscape design for an area with a pool, we always consider the best hardscapes, plant life, and flow of the space to incorporate the pool so it feels like part of the overall design. This ensures that the family gets maximum enjoyment while minimizing maintenance and potential issues of plant life around the pool area.”
Inside Out – Extending that Home Feel Outside
Want to have that beautiful outdoor space that feels just like the inside of your home? You are in good company! Nancy O’Dell, Entertainment Tonight co-host, felt the same way when she had her outdoor room designed. She really wanted the make the outdoors feel like an indoor room.
“Outdoor rooms come in many shapes and sizes, from kitchens, to media rooms to entire living areas,” said Marc. “Our commitment is to ensure that the room is beautiful and adds value to the client’s home and living space by incorporating elements based on both the home’s exterior and interior for a cohesive and attractive look.”
Of course, these are just a few of our favorites. You could also make a case for Julia Roberts’ private Hawaiian beach or Tom Cruise’s backyard with lagoon heated pool, waterfall and wine tasting room.
