Corner Lot Wraparound
Homeowner requested the color blue and to be a unique presence in their neighborhood. We chose a mixture of blue washed stone and driftwood to create the perfect coastal ambiance.
Homeowner had a significant slope to their yard presenting some drainage and erosion problems from their rain gutter spout. Whenever possible we like to use a natural-looking miniature creek to divert water when needed and to create a beautiful texture all year around.

We believe in using California Native plants as a foreground in composing a garden that celebrates the natural beauty of this State.
However, the plants themselves can be a compositional partner in re-creating the wonderful experiences that are found in California.
We encourage every client, with even a small outside space, to allow themselves a chance to turn this into their 'dream space'.
No matter the scale, inviting wonder into the landscaping process is valuable and will serve the garden and the owner.
