During this pandemic, I feel lucky to have work. Grateful to be able to do what I love. So when I was contacted by a lovely couple in Corona Del Mar to renovate their backyard, I will in. They did not want to keep anything other than a few plants and wanted a space to entertain outdoor and roast some marshmallows.
I began this project much like any by measuring the site, creating a site plan and taking analysis of the site. Most of the site is full son with a few shady spots. The existing concrete patio was not working for the owners and needed to be redone. A space to have a fire pit was requested and the owners wanted a drought tolerant plant palette.
I continued by designing two options to show what is possible for the space. From there the client selected a design that was better suited for their needs. Then I created detailed drawings that two contractors bid off of.
This video depicts the process of installation. I will post another video of what the project looks like in the evening.
