Contemporary Beachside Garden
2018 CA Landscape Contractors Assn-East Bay, Medium Residential Installation, First Place
An active professional couple with newborn twins and a full-size dog wanted to say goodbye to deteriorating artificial turf and hello to an inviting, easy to maintain landscape with cozy areas made for playing, relaxing and entertaining.
Their new exterior is clad in a modern mix of metal, wood, and stone materials — fused together so the outside rooms now act as a natural extension of the home’s stylish interior.
Boardwalk-style plank pavers tie in with the coastal surroundings, immediately bringing the beach to the house, and reinforcing the garden’s sense of place.
The backyard features an outdoor kitchen, a poured concrete and redwood bench for lounging around a new fire pit, a shaded dining patio, and a hot tub for soaking. A new outdoor shower was also installed for easily ‘washing off the beach.'
