Vertical Garden
Japanese Garden Design
Formal Garden Design

The samples here are a variety of styles and solutions that create ideal outdoor living spaces. Listed below are brief descriptions of each project.

  • A modern garden design was employed to meet the homeowners urban eclectic style. With this project we transformed a backyard that had been too steep to be used into a multi-tiered outdoor oasis for family and friends to enjoy.

  • A Zen garden was created in an area that had been a cramped, overgrown backyard. The garden became a spiritual retreat as well as an homage to a loved one.
  • A backyard oasis that had been overgrown and unmanageable was transformed into a space where the homeowners could find healing communion with nature.
  • An apartment complex had an outdoor living space used by a small community of people that was badly in need of renovation. We created a safe, secure environment that was also aesthetically appealing to all the residents.
  • An Italian garden design was created to provide style without stiffness. An unkempt yard was transformed into an environment with Old World sensibility and modern day luxuries.
  • A terraced garden was created in what had been steep hillside yard with hard-to-use soil. The end product was well designed, family-friendly outdoor living room that was an extension of the client's home.
  • A Japanese garden design transformed an untended yard into a space for spiritual contemplation. The transformation seamlessly blurred the lines between home and garden.
  • A formal garden design was employed to rebuild gardens which had been torn apart during a foundation retrofitting project. We created a beautiful garden that elegantly complemented the architecture of the classic Mediterranean residence.
  • A steeply sloping front yard garden needed to be made usable for a family with children who desired outdoor play areas. We created a functional, stylish, and fun outdoor living space.
  • A landscaping project created in phases to renovate a garden for a client with a limited budget.
  • A space that was about water and sky in which we maximized those elements when thinking about the overall aesthetic of the project.
