PROJECT GALLERY

We've worked on some incredible landscape design projects. Take a look at our gallery to see all the amazing work we've been a part of. Our goal is to transform your outdoor space and we've accomplished that time and time again for our clients. 

Home to only a protected Live Oak tree before a newly constructed home was built, this  backyard needed a serious uplift to bring it to the standard of the neighborhood that was planned to be built around it.  The homeowner was hoping for a clean and crisp outdoor living space where they could relax with family and entertain their friends. We designed and planned a swimming pool with a perimeter overflow spa, a feature wall that is home to the water feature as well as a means to block the pool equipment behind it. The pool is flanked by two IPE tanning decks. On the opposite side of the larger of the two decks, a board formed concrete fire-pit joins the outdoor dining area that looks over a three hole putting green. Finally a conservatively sized outdoor kitchen sits just outside of the back of the home.  This project is one of four adjoining backyards we designed and the first to be completed.

Sometimes walking out of your door directly to a large open area with a place to cool off is just what the doctor ordered. This Willow Glen client just wanted something easy they could quickly access and have plenty of space to spread out. A healthy sized two color composite deck meets all of the doors that lead to the backyard space. At the end of the deck, the client can step down just once and be standing on the coping (edge) of the pool.  To the right of the backyard is a raised beam spa which has a cascading waterfall down into the pool. The entire space ends with a feature wall just behind the pool.

After remodeling their home and adding an in-law suite in San Jose, California, this client wanted to landscape the area and add a significantly sized modern outdoor living area.  Once a general layout was figured out, we enhanced the space to include artificial turf space, two bluestone patios, a modern tricolor deck, planting boxes, privacy trees and a custom outdoor fireplace.

MODERN OUTDOOR LIVING

Besides an orange tree and a sauna, this backyard space in the Palm Haven area of Willow Glen didn’t have much going for it. The homeowners really wanted an interesting outdoor living space they could be excited about. On their wishlist were an outdoor covered space, a fire feature, raised planting area and two outdoor spaces that could become one. We introduced a space with a four color angled deck, a covered sitting area with angled pergola surrounded by sitting walls with plating space and a custom built fireplace. We turned up the volume on the funk as our clients allowed us to stretch our imagination with this project.  

PLAZA

This client purchased a newly built home with no established outdoor areas in Campbell, CA.  The client wished to have a space to relax with family and friends and it was important for them to have space for their two young daughters to play.  Throughout the conceptual design stage we agreed on an outline for the space and then figured out how to include a custom artificial turf/play area, outdoor kitchen patio covered by a pergola, outdoor planting space and a simple and nearly maintenance free front yard for curb appeal.

Sometimes a little curb appeal is just what the doctor ordered.  Our client wished to have some added parking area, a wall to keep neighbors’ pets off the property and extensive outdoor lighting.  We quickly figured out a way to tie everything together and what resulted was a fully functional space that also looks pretty darn neat.

CURB APPEAL

REIMAGINED

LANDSCAPE DESIGN SAN JOSE, CA

The challenge with this project was to figure out a way to incorporate a path to a large 3 car garage and an outdoor living area in the same space while still maintaining some green space.  The design was put together in such a way that the outdoor living area is perpendicular to the house. A large custom cedar pergola covers a silver travertine outdoor living space with outdoor kitchen, outdoor dining and custom concrete outdoor spa.  The space was finished with fans, outdoor heaters, outdoor lighting and plenty of outlets for plugging other fun things into.

Purchasing a new home with a steep and otherwise unusable backyard that dropped about 80 feet to a street below left these clients desiring something they had originally thought to be impossible.  Once we engineered and figured out a large wall that would expand usability exponentially, I then figured out how to add an outdoor patio, outdoor kitchen, infinity pool overlooking the property below and fire pit area.
