Current Project- Novato

We are wrapping up this project in Novato, a renovation of an existing back yard landscape to create more usable area and better transition spaces. We pushed the spa and retaining wall back into the hillside to create more space, planting the back hillside and expanded the lawn and flagstone walkways.

Before- The previous spa configuration, while not unattractive, created unusable lawn space and cramped the back yard

Before- The flagstone walkway that was existing was cramped by the lawn and spa configuration

The old spa pad was moved from the center of the yard to the edge of the yard, creating more open usable space. The hillside was planted with groundcovers and colorful perennials to open up views from the interior and improve on the bare hillside.

The existing flagstone was matched to tie in a seamless appearance with the old patio.

The spa was pushed back into the hillside, creating more usable space within the yard.
