Preached above San Diego Bay sits a beach home reminiscent of summer vacation homes of long ago. The homeowner needed to create more dining and seating areas while enhancing the relaxed coastal theme. We added a new brick patio with a bluestone rug to anchor the seating area, along with a new fireplace that adds warmth on cooler evenings. Native cobble stone walls delineate areas while enhancing that casual feeling of the new outdoor space. We provided cutouts in the patio to accommodate new shade trees that help filter the harsh southern exposure, this along with new ornamental grasses, citrus, succulents and agapanthus finish off the sea inspired theme. This landscape now offer more space for family and friends while whisking you away to a beach house of yesterday.
