Landscape Awards of Excellence — 2008 Winner #2
<< back

Our goal for this award winning landscape was to create a tropical 'escape retreat' complete with outdoor shower, impressive water feature and unique garden material. Using tropical plantings, especially around the massive water feature, we achieved the tropical look while still maintaining a hardy selection that could survive the winter. This 5000 square foot backyard was transformed from a plank slate constructions site to a retreat worth celebrating just out your own backdoor.

With the boulders along the garden edge encrouching on the stamped concrete patio we created a flawless transition between patio and garden. A tropical paradise surrounds you throughout the entire yard creating a private and intimate space bringing you closer to nature. While rinsing off in the outdoor shower, after your afternoon dip in the pool, with boulders and ferns directly below your feet and palm trees nearby, you could easily forget you've just stepped out into your own backyard.
