The existing back yard of this Travis Heights dwelling is approximately 1,000 SF and home to a lovely heritage oak. Due to the extremely sloped lot and tree protection the clients were unable to create a large outdoor seating area. Their front yard also sloped significantly and required lots of water and maintenance. The solution was to create a seating area in the front yard through a series of terraces. The thirsty lawn was replaced with a drought tolerant ground cover and synthetic lawn. Lighting, drip irrigation and a fence tie the project together.
