Before

Not enough usable space. Unkempt & inconsistent plantings. Dirt and dust everywhere!

Steve and Kacey, who lived in a tiny apartment for years, bought this property in wine country because of all the space. The only issue: most of the yard was unusable because of an excess of leaves, dirt, and an absence of spaces for dining and entertaining. So, they turned to Yardzen.

PROJECT GOAL & REQUIREMENTS:
  • Achieve a modern rustic look for this wine country home
  • Distinct spaces for dining, entertaining, and relaxing
  • Low-maintenance ground coverings
  • Create privacy from back and side neighbors
  • Revitalize and trim back existing trees to create more light
  • Habitat-supporting plants to attract pollinators
  • Lighting for evenings outside
LET'S BEGIN WITH

First draft 3D design

  • A mix of ground coverings—grass, pavers, and gravel—to create distinct zones in the yard.
  • Low-maintenance grasses and flowering shrubs. Bring on the pollinators!
  • Keep the lemon tree. (We keep trees whenever we can!)
  • Evergreens along the back fence to create privacy
  • Space for a hot tub!

A plan the homeowners love. Let’s find a contractor!

A new backyard that checks all of the boxes, designed fully online and installed by a local contractor.
