These examples from our portfolio of landscaping projects are some of our designer’s favorite photos. May the luxurious designs inspire you to think about how your backyard or outdoor space can have a vacation home feel.
Spa Retreat for Complete Serenity
You don’t have to make a trip to that high-end spa to enjoy a stunning outdoor space designed by San Diego landscape architects. Time to lay back, relax, and let the bubbles work their magic.
This California backyard exemplifies the notion of the ideal way to seamlessly connect your indoor life to the outdoors. You can just walk outside, take a dip in the hot tub and be on a stress-free vacation in the Mojave all year round.
Beach Oasis to Kick Back and Lay Out
Another dream space for spa lovers is this Rancho Santa Fe Oasis. This area’s focus is the unique, geometric water fountain constructed from smooth concrete and accented with a delightful patterned tile effect.
You can lounge on the sand with your daiquiri, close your eyes, listen to the splashing sound of water, and imagine you are relaxing by the ocean. Bring all the amazing aspects of the beach home with you, without all the annoying tourists and loud college kids.
Relaxing Space to Appreciate Life
Do you like going on vacations where you reflect on how amazing your life is? Recognizing all that you have done to get where you are, while you enjoy a peaceful space and listen to the water fall.
The highlight of this Del Mar Modern design is an al fresco dining area and kitchen and a modern-art-style water feature with its calming sound just inviting you to take time out and breathe easier.
Putting Green for Endless Tea Time
Do you never go anywhere on vacation unless you can play golf and drink delicious beers? Get a load of this backyard redesigned for entertainment and your ideal vacation.
The focus point of this outdoor Eden is the putting green where you can unwind and imagine you’re out on the golf course. The green is made from artificial turf, an eco-friendly way to enjoy an outdoor green space and at the same time conserve water.
Zen Garden to Reach Tranquility
Have you vacationed at a combined spa and meditation retreat? This backyard design creates a zen atmosphere where you can achieve the same stillness of mind that was the goal of your vacation.
An ambiance of calm and serenity is created with a mix of concrete, pea gravel, and decomposed granite that blends with small areas of greenery and interesting statuettes. The outdoor furniture and accents include a comfortable outdoor sectional where you can relax and peacefully meditate.
