Character + Elegance
This design process started with the idea of a rustic Hacienda design style. The client originally wanted a full pool but ultimately landed on a spool design that creates the center focus for the backyard living area. We integrated Belgard La Fitt Rustic Slab pavers with a brown clay brick border to enhance the edging and tie it visually back to the accent architectural materials on the home. The stone fire pit with ceramic logs adds a perfect area to retire to at the end of the evening and enjoy the west sunset views. Synthetic grass was integrated into the space for the client's pets and grandkids to enjoy, while adding a visually cooling effect to the backyard. With the planting design we wanted to transition smoothly from the natural desert, enhancing the space with citrus trees and several varieties of flowering shrubs and groundcovers. The low voltage lighting was integrated through out to showcase not only the home features but the beautiful sculptural plantings and large saguaros that were brought in after a salvage.
