Warm and welcoming

This project had a driveway that consisted of concrete strips and grass in-between with a awkward  set of 8" high entry steps that was  a nightmare to negotiate  around the car and up the steps with a bag of groceries. furthermore the rear  yard was cut off by a hill making it difficult for guests to enter they'd without having to negotiate the steps and entering through the house. The solution is an elegant entry that is "warm and welcoming"   we expanded the driveway area and connected the home with a wide walkway leading to a set of  6" high steps and comfortable landings that wrap around planters eliminating the need for railings  the generous size landings give the user  respit between the  short sets of stairs . This entrance also settles the front of the house into the landscape giving it a softer look. Furthermore we excavated the hillside on the left side of the house and balanced it off with a walkway retaining wall and entry steps into the rear yard.. creating true form following function design  . Another Bounus benfit of this  design is  the walkways actual expand the driveway and give a step off area when you open the doors of the car 


From residential to commercial to industrial, we can design a landscape layout to suit your needs.
