We created an outdoor living area that the owners enjoy lounging in, will build a future evening pizza area, and will have a conversation space in their beautiful backyard while listening to the sound of water. The crew started creating the paver patio space, natural stone retaining walls and a beautiful oasis with water feature by removing the entire hillside that was covered in a water thirsty lawn. Access was a bit tricky and the machinery to move rocks and other materials was accessed through a 4’ wide gate that we removed. The plantscape is native enhanced and drought tolerant. We covered the ground with peagravel which is also an easy maintenance material. We incorporated a Thyme lawn for the owners’ dog. Both front and backyard are xeriscape with big contemporary pavers, steel edging, and native basalt rock. All of this provided easy maintenance and low water needs. This project continues to fill in with beautiful textures and colors and the overall balance of hardscape with plantscape is perfect!
