Front Yard Landscape and Porch Remodel

When the front of your house needs remodeling, landscape contractors are not typically the first place you turn for creative design and construction. The smart new owners of this home, however, recognized the important interaction between the landscape and their house, and the value of having a singular point of responsibility in that intersection. Having the same hands blend the elements of designing and building everything from the front porch and pergola, to hardscapes, rock work, and then tie in the landscape itself, creates a harmonious and naturally integrated look. The seamlessness of the decorative and practical aspects produces a functional, yet aesthetically appealing front entry.

The Arroyo River rock seen throughout is real stone, and often used in classic Craftsman style homes, offering a stylistic update without sacrificing the Craftsman tradition. The wide entry staircase welcomes you to the home, and highlights the beautiful front doors. The grand pergola not only adds functionality, but a strong visual vertical element to draw the eye upwards, without blocking the view from the upstairs windows. The landscape and park-like quality complements the home without distracting from the strong craftsman features. Simply by looking at the before and after photos, one can immediately glean the value of investment.

More than just an aesthetic upgrade overhaul, the use of this house is dual-purpose. The homeowners not only live here, but integrate their professions in the entertainment industry by hosting film shoots at the property. Having excellent curb appeal helps attract prospective production companies to use both the interior and exterior of the home.
