A thoughtfully designed outdoor living space is priceless. It’s a source of enjoyment, a place to build memories, and increases the resale value of your home. We primarily service the San Francisco peninsula- Burlingame, Hillsborough, San Mateo, Foster City, Millbrae, Belmont, and San Carlos.
The term "hardscapes" includes patios from all materials (stone, porcelain, pavers and concrete), pool decks, wood decks, walkways, sitting walls, retaining walls, water features, fire pits, arbors and any other custom-built feature for your outdoor living space. The two biggest trends in outdoor entertaining are outdoor kitchens and firepits.
LED lighting has been a game-changer in lighting yards. Lighting brings a garden to life in the evenings to enjoy. The spectrum of lighting options continues to evolve yearly and the number of vendors offering lighting increases. The main categories are uplighting for trees, path and step lighting, ambiance lighting
Planting design is one of Gardenscapes core strengths. Every yard has multiple microclimates that need to be factored into the overall plant design layout. Factors such as the direction your home faces, the amount of shade cast by trees, and the direction and amount of wind you get in your yard all factor in choosing the best plants for your yard that will last.
Outdoor kitchens range from a small island with a grill and refrigerator to a galley kitchen with a grill, pizza oven, refrigerator, sink, and more. “L” shaped kitchens are popular which gives you space to cook and a space for seating for guests. Recently, you can even purchase prefab outdoor kitchens from Pottery Barn and others.
Irrigation design is a process in which an irrigation system is designed and installed. When installing an irrigation system, it pays to take the time to design it properly; a well-designed system can save water, work more effectively, and meet the needs of the situation better than a system that was hastily constructed and poorly thought out.
Firepits and Fireplaces
Fire Pits are a great space to relax with family and friends before and after dinner and enjoy the ambiance of your yard and create lasting memories. This is one of the most common features clients have been installing when remodeling the backyard. You can create a custom fire pit or purchase a prefab from a lot of different vendors these days.
