Bringing in the Team: Sustainability, Functionality, and Beauty

One of the most common complaints that we hear from homeowners in San Diego City, is their desire to have a larger outdoor living space. Here are some additional tips for landscape design in small spaces, so you can enjoy the best weather in the world inside a beautiful backyard design.

Before we began this project, the fence, hot tub, and deck all together made the area feel chopped up and stuffy. As a reaction to this, we created a wide open space, integrating the wood fence with synthetic grass panels.

All the needs of this family were fulfilled by these adjustments, producing a classy adult living space that oversees the evergreen turf play area for the children. Even the family dog was awarded it’s very own space in the design!

We thought “outside of the box” and used the values of sustainable luxury home remodeling, and the vision of the client, to create a frequently used area this low-maintenance and eco-friendly landscape construction.

Small stylistic elements, such as choice wood and the appropriate foliage, are really the heart and soul of this earthy turnaround. Inspired by balance and harmony, the water feature and bamboo plants put an eastern, elemental twist on a contemporary, minimalist hardscape design technique.
