Outer Sunset:

Discovering a new favorite space

When our Outer Sunset clients moved into their new home, the side yard was wall to wall weeds. After our first clean up, they spent some time living with the rediscovered original layout, and knew the old design didn’t meet their desire—to eat and relax outside. Our redesign included a cozy flagstone patio, stepping stones, and intimacy enhancing privacy plantings. Out front, we liberated the curbside gardens from mis-matching wrought iron, and updated the cute vintage home’s look with modern water-wise plantings. 


  • Started with cleanup and maintenance
  • Enhanced curb appeal by updating street-facing beds
  • Neglected side yard turned into private retreat
  • Gopher mitigation with caged roots for plantings and sound-deterants
