Sacramento, CA Landscape Design
The existing site was nearly all concrete with little greenery, and the space went very under-used for entertaining. A new raised patio, combining colored concrete and mortared flagstone, was installed. This patio, with its seatwalls and fountain wall framing its perimeter, creates a comfortable space for the owners to enjoy their morning coffee while reading the newspaper. Vertical elements were given a rough stucco face with bold colors, including the old wooden shed.
This same flagstone treatment was used to create a large patio for outdoor dining and lounge space. A rustic look to the potting shed helps this generally utilitarian feature feel more part of the finished design. Detail elements, such as the hand-made steel column planters, water features, and decorative pots, add to the space’s cozy feeling.⟪ Landscape Design Portfolio
