This is a job we completed just over a year ago in Thousand Oaks which is near Camarillo in Ventura County. This video shows how well all the plants have grown in in just a year's time. We began with a clean slate of dirt in the back and sides and the builder installed front landscape. We created a landscape design based on the clients' needs and integrating the existing layout and topography of the site. We enlarged and added planters in the front and redid all of the planting. On the side yard, we created a concrete trash pad and utility area and added stepping stones to access the new colored and stained concrete patio in the rear. The rear patio is shaded by a beautiful wood patio cover that is painted to match the house trim and accented with LED down lights and a bubbling urn fountain which the hummingbirds love. There are additional LED lights to illuminate the walkways and accent the plantings. There are two distinct areas in the back patio, one off the master bedroom for a private sitting area and another off the kitchen that serves as gathering area for larger events. There is large lawn on the other side where the kids can play and run around. Treated wood timbers make a rustic staircase to the elevated citrus grove on top of the rear slope. All the irrigation is the latest in water efficiency and is controlled by a Rainbird SMART controller for weather-based scheduling. If there is any questions on this project feel free to contact me. Enjoy!
