Backyard Landscape & Xeriscape Design for San Diego Homes
You undoubtedly want to incorporate grass, trees, and shrubs into your backyard landscaping plans. The trick is to minimize the impact these additions have on your water consumption. Xeriscaping is the key.
Xeriscapes incorporate drought-tolerant plants native to Southern California to create a lush setting with the lowest possible water and energy usage. Xeriscaping is particularly beneficial for filling a small yard with eye-catching plants. Our backyard landscape designers can bring your ideas to life for beautiful, low-maintenance results.
Along with tastefully arranged plantings, your backyard can benefit from the addition of hardscapes, including patios, paved walkways, stairs, pergolas, retaining walls, and anything else constructed from concrete, stone, brick, or wood. The more hardscapes you incorporate into the design, the lower-maintenance your backyard becomes.
Backyard Fire Features
While San Diego has warm weather all year round, a fire pit is the perfect way to keep the fun going on a chilly evening. Gather round and roast marshmallows with the kids, or relax with a glass of wine and a good book. A fire feature is sure to add value and function to your backyard landscape, no matter how you plan to use it.
Backyard Water Features
Nothing creates a sense of calm like a trickling waterfall or bubbling fountain. Maybe you want to introduce more life into your backyard with a stylish koi pond or multi-level water feature. You might also dream of a backyard with a pool for family and friends to enjoy throughout the year thanks to the gorgeous San Diego weather. Whatever your wish, Eco Minded Solutions can design and build it.
It’s one thing to wheel a portable grill onto your patio to whip up some burgers. It’s another thing entirely to have a bona fide outdoor kitchen complete with built-in grill, oven, griddle, sink, refrigerator, and dishwasher. Add an extended counter and bar stools and the party can really get started!
Outdoor Living Rooms
Who wants to sit inside when the beautiful Southern California weather beckons? With a covered outdoor living room, you can enjoy all the comforts of home—including a fireplace, sofa, and TV—in an outdoor space where ocean breezes freely blow by. Consider hanging a hammock or installing a porch swing to increase comfort and provide more seating in the family’s favorite hangout spot.
