Canyon Retreat

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.
