Lawn Goodbye: Hello Putting Green

Our backyard is now the perfect place to entertain, dine, relax and play!” – John & JulieDSC00066

This 2017 Project begins with a wonderful Palo Alto family of four wanted to get more use of their backyard.  Their existing backyard had served its purpose for many years when their children were young. Now their children in college, it was underused and in desperate need of an update.

Having lived in their home for 19 years, my clients communicated clearly with goals to take advantage of the reason they moved to Palo Alto in the first place.  Both desire spending more time for themselves enjoying our year round climate in Northern California. By initially addressing the specific request to decrease the water usage and the accompanying utility bills, objective for addition of a fire pit to the existing spa destination; both sharing their spaces for also a new destination of the turf for the husband, and avid golfer. John had always wanted to practice in his own backyard.  Viola! The perfect place to entertain, dine, relax and play!


A very comfortable, attractive and inviting new outdoor living room has been created!
