This simple, clean, and low maintenance backyard was designed to harmonize with the client’s modern ranch home and whimsical taste. Concrete steppers reference the kitchen’s tile backsplash designed by the client. Custom designed Corten steel planters create a sculptural focal point and provide an easy care herb and vegetable raised garden beds.

Regrading and the addition of a floating wood deck turned an unusable, constantly soggy backyard into a place to relax and host gourmet dinner parties featuring homegrown produce.

This dog friendly design features a perimeter path between the fence and the plantings was designed for their golden retriever to patrol the yard. Plants were selected to be canine safe.
