"Our pool and guest house landscape design needs
included multi-season color, screening, borders, erosion control, grading and
drainage, and sun/shade management in addition to traditional beautification.
Jill partnered with us to develop a courtyard pool plan that completely met our
needs and took advantage of our mountain view. We couldn't be happier". ~ LN
My Clients bought a
house and land with a beautiful view of the mountains. They wanted to add a guesthouse/garage, pool,
and gardens. The resulting design was a swimming pool courtyard created by the
house and the new guesthouse/garage. A pergola
attached the two buildings and faced the mountain view, looking over the pool.

"We love the fireplace and use it frequently... Even in the summer, it’s great after sundown when the temp goes
down - kind of like a campfire at a campsite." ~ ML
My Clients had a 10' retaining wall between their side and front yards. The area was very visible from the living areas of their house. They needed access to the side yard and an attractive and useful feature to bring them outside.

My Clients had an existing pool and garden that needed a
total renovation as well as updating to comply with pool code. They also needed some shade near the pool,
planting areas around the pool to decrease the amount of paving, and a way to
make the house look less imposing when viewed from the pool. Finally, they wanted a pool landscape that
matched the style of the house.
