Landscape Remodels and Makeovers

These photos show projects designed to revitalize dated landscapes or add new purpose and function to meet owners' new requirements. Some added new elements. Some reconfigured old concepts or updated materials. All are designed and installed to provide enhanced usability and aesthetics for clients' evolving lifestyles and tastes.


Carlsbad Hillside Retreat

This coastal zone residence featured an unused 50 foot slope dominating the back yard, along with a limited space for gathering with dated finishes. Conceptual guidelines were to increase and enhance usable space by utilizing the slope, creating a magnet to the space, and modernizing the finishes while still tying them into the existing materials.

Point Loma Intimate Retreat

This remodeled, 1950s residence needed a new site design to compliment the structural changes, as well as the evolved lifestyle of the owners. Access points were altered for safety, ease and aesthetics. Materials and details were designed to bring the indoor and outdoor spaces together, plantings provide privacy, color and water conservation to the yard. This planting is only 9 months old. Look here for updated picture in a year or so.

Front yard replaces old turf with new, low water use plantings for color and drought resistance. New paving, rock-faced foundation and stone retaining walls all compliment the updated structural renovation.
