How do you create a peaceful and serene sanctuary in the city?
The Costa Verde landscaping crew removed the old garden shed that had deteriorated beyond repair in the back yard and then excavated the existing landscaping. We built on-site a new garden shed and an attached home office in a new West Coast style out of beautiful local cedar. A new deck, bench, stairs, railings, and latticework were constructed to ensure maximum privacy in the backyard and add additional beauty to the area.
We now outsource landscape construction contractors as a part of larger-scale landscape design plans with us.
We used pieces of local slate to create pathways throughout the new lawn. Our gardeners installed tropical and west coast plants in garden beds with a bamboo hedge. We used unique plants such as palm trees, a massive red banana tree, mimosa tree, agaves, bamboos, tropical hostas, and ferns to create a serene oasis. The additions of Cana lily’s and trumpet flowers in large, locally sourced pots, plus an olive tree and other tropical-inspired plants helped create the feeling of serenity that our client wanted.
The deck was stained and glass installed in the railings to give the feeling of being more spacious and open. We welded the railing and added a built-in BBQ support and attached custom stainless steel glass clips to hold the glass in place. To separate the area used by the suite from the house, we installed fence panels and created an additional small patio and garden space complete with a custom-built bench and garden pots.« back to projects
