Designing An Outdoor Space You Can Enjoy All Year

Summer’s officially over.

But for our clients, Pumpkin Spice season doesn’t have to be spent indoors…

Because they have an outdoor space they can enjoy all year.

Here’s how they’re using their yards this fall ↓

This might be the most opulent sunken seating area we’ve ever created. It’s seriously cozy and accented by a sleek rain curtain, modern design, and all the lavish details you’d find at the most luxurious 5-star resorts.


Is there anything better than a bonfire with your family (aside from ooey, gooey s’mores)? We love designing fire features for our clients because they create space for the entire family to spend time together.


Fall is the perfect time to spend a Saturday afternoon shooting hoops or sinking putts. When a client asks for a sports court or a putting green, we know their kids are going to spend a ton of time out there!


An outdoor movie night under the stars? Yes, please! For many of our clients, adding an entertainment area to their yard is a must—so they can cozy up and watch Netflix outside. 


When the weather’s too cold for a swim in the pool, the spa is still a great option—esepcially if it’s designed in an enclosed or covered area!

Organic Design – what it is and how to create it

What is Organic Design?

We’re always keeping our eye on emerging trends, and right now we’re finding inspiration in a whole new design aesthetic called organic design.

This versatile design trend is equally at home in the California desert, Mexican Riviera, or the beaches of Bali, and can be achieved with just a few simple style choices. Shifting away from a streamlined, sharply modern look, organic design focuses more on earthy textures and colors that emulate nature.


Bringing this style to your backyard starts with choosing the correct materials. Swapping out polished, manufactured components for natural stone finishes quickly gives your backyard an earthy vibe, perfect for connecting with your inner hippie. Walls and seating finished with eco-friendly, earthen plaster creates a rough, untouched look. Organic design diverges away from drastic, bold finishes and instead focuses on intentionally weathered components, so, even if a structure is brand new, it looks and feels like it’s been there for decades.


Curves and one-of-a-kind structures establish the base of a natural-feeling exterior space. Arced alcoves and columns are crucial to achieving this look, while water features that emulate the natural silhouettes of riverbanks blur the distinction between raw and man-made elements. The lines are direct but soft and move away from harsh, cut edges. Similar to the rock formations we would see on a hike in Joshua Tree, delicate curves imitate wild yucca trees and palm fronds. Rounded lines mimic rolling hills, connecting the design back to nature.


Organic design utilizes a limited color palette, featuring muted colors commonly found in nature. A stark, black and white color palette is traded out for softer creams and eggshell whites and accented with shades of taupe and sand. The soft green hue of succulents completes the color palette, and bold accents of lush tropical greenery bring the entire look together.

Connecting the whole landscape together offers a resort-like feel for a backyard of any size. Function and comfort come together with the organic design movement, and offer a cozy aesthetic that is luxurious and inviting. We can’t help but love this back-to-nature vibe to embrace a timeless vacation escape.
