This back and side yard landscape project incorporated many facets of construction and provided a significant grade challenge in that the backyard was significantly higher than the house foundation. It required demolition of an old garage, tree removal and large amounts of dirt removal. In the side yard, we built a new garage, demolished and re-poured 100’ of hazardous sidewalk and installed irrigation and plants. In the backyard, we built several stucco-faced raised beds capped with stone, mortared a flagstone patio, built a lattice/trellis along the side of the garage, installed a fountain and installed irrigation and plants.
