The Canyon Retreat sits on a hill with full south facing exposure. The views are spectacular looking at neighboring hills. The yard consisted of mostly juniper, rocks and a dilapidated pool with broken concrete surrounding it. Setting the view as the primary focal point, we set to work adding stone patios, stone retaining walls, and reworking the pool with a pebble finish. We created a country club feel to the backyard. The front yard is accessed by deer, fox, quail, etc so we needed to replant that with animal friendly plants. Installing a rock wall and wood steps. A new gate with the fence and wisteria at the end of the yard create a magical vista. All the old concrete that was removed was repurposed down the canyon side to shore up the steep canyon.
