When we first examined this client’s property, we found that most of their existing lawn had deteriorated beyond repair. They had beautiful Garry Oak trees throughout the property, but otherwise had to start from scratch to spruce up their outdoor space.
First, we removed the ground layer of soil and excavated the backyard. Once we obtained the necessary permits, we installed a new in-ground irrigation system to ensure the ease of garden and lawn maintenance for years to come.
Incorporating a totally new landscape design for the outdoor space, we created a new lawn, patio, and garden beds to blend into the natural Garry Oak landscape that the owners wished to maintain. We strategically placed boulders among new shrubs to fashion an Alpine, rock-garden feel to the property. We also built and installed a large cedar vegetable container in the backyard as the owner desired a spot to plant a small garden.
Another feature of this beautiful property is the interlocking patio and pathway we created to their newly poured cement stairs. We redid the existing interlocking brick driveway, as there were too many dips and dives to pry up individual stones here and there try to make the whole surface level again.
The team at Costa Verde continues to maintain this property and perform routine care and maintenance for the owners of this beautiful home.« back to projects
