Design/Build by Wu-Way Landscape
A 30-year-old landscape was ready for refurbishing. Children had
departed, some plantings were overgrown and other plantings had become
woody and unregenerative. It was determined to increase outdoor areas
for both daily living and entertaining, in a style that blends Sierra Foothills and Mediterranean.
A new entry walkway was built. The back lawn was replaced with a small vegetable garden with raised beds and a trellis-capped deer fence. Simple court areas of decomposed granite were created, with built-in benches, a stone fire ring, a small brick patio for quiet retreat, a new sequestered zone for a clothesline, and a delightful Italian terra cotta bowl to provide a source of water for beauty and wildlife.
Landscape lighting and irrigation were installed along with new plantings of deer resistant natives and other low water plants.
