Unique Environmental Landscapes

Turning nightmares into dreams. The primary goal for these homeowners was to stop having nightmares about their back yard.

We convinced them they needed to do more than just expand the deck to achieve…

Unique Environmental Landscapes

Texture and color bring balance to all seasons. During a renovation to the front of the house, the homeowner had created the “skeleton” of a courtyard but didn’t know how to pull it all together through landscaping.

Decked out back yard

Unique Environmental Landscapes

Making more space to enjoy the outdoors. When these owners purchased the home, the pool had minimal decking only on one side.

Wide appeal in narrow space

Unique Environmental Landscapes

Maximum outdoor living. This small in-town yard (a little over 2000 sq. ft.) did nothing for the homeowner as far as usability and entertainment. There was a very small concrete back patio beneath the deck and the rest of the yard sloped away or uphill, making it unusable. The back yard and side yard are very narrow, with…

Water, slope and drainage

Unique Environmental Landscapes - drainage solution

Sloping side yard causes drainage problem. This homeowner called us in to address a significant drainage issue. Their relatively small and compact yard had a significant right to the left slope, all wedged between large homes. The upper neighbor’s water flowed into their side yard and formed a pool of water with every rainfall. Our…
