Jesse York, Landscape Designer
This backyard lies at the top of a hill in Santa Luz with views to the mountains to the north and east and the coast to the west. The views during daytime are great, but even better at night. Natural stone, concrete pavers and white stucco combine for a low maintenance yet elegant yard.

This property was covered with pink rock when our client called us. In an effort to be gentle on the environment, and to save money, the client took our suggestion to work with what they had by incorporating more contrasting rock to bring the property together in a cohesive design. The clients are active birders and wanted to grow their own food including vegetables and fruits. We worked with interior designer, Nikki Klugh, to select gorgeous furniture to compliment the design.

This yard utilizes the beautiful views, mature saguaros and trees, and natural boulder outcroppings in it's design to create a natural and peaceful space. A boulder water feature gently trickles down from the existing outcropping as if a natural, undiscovered spring.

The team helped transform an area once filled with spotty grass to a back yard that will look amazing all year. The project included removing existing pavers and reshaping the end of the paver walkway, artificial turf, concrete slab, concrete borders, river rock, succulents, drip irrigation, and running electrical for an outdoor fridge. The space is now low maintenance and ready for entertaining.

These homeowners were looking to up their hosting game by modernizing their property to create the ultimate entertainment space. A custom outdoor kitchen was added with a top of the line Delta Heat grill and a special nook for a Big Green Egg. Flagstone was added to create asymmetrical walkways throughout the yard that extended into a ring around the fire pit. Four rectangular trellises were added along the fence and shed, with an all metal pergola located at the back of the pool. This unique structure immediately draws the eye and adds a playful, artistic element to the rest of the space. The use of various sized rocks, gravel, and flagstone give a rough texture that creates a symbiosis with the metalwork. Silver Falls Dichondra creates a beautiful contrast to the rocks and can be found all over the property along with various other grasses, ferns, and agave. A large area of gravel rests on the side of the house, giving the client room to park a recreational vehicle. In front, a privacy fence was added along one of the property lines, leading into a drought resistant, eco-friendly section of yard. This fence, coupled with a giant boulder, doubles as a safety precaution in case drivers miss the turn and run into their lawn. This updated landscaping adds an effortless flow for guests to move from the front yard to the back while creating a very open, welcoming feel to all who enter.
