From basic elements of iron, stone, wood and fire we have created a warm and inviting outdoor living space for cooking, dining and gathering. Art is integral to any design…"Parallel Universes" represents the infinite possible universes comprising the entirety of space, time, matter and energy--the basic elements of our existence in this universe.

Metamorphose — A Garden Reborn
Our garden is a reflection of how to add new life and meaning to objects and plants.
Our main pieces, olive trees that are more than one century old, are believed by many to be a nuisance in the garden due to their messy history of dropping fruit and leaves. These trees often fall victim to the chainsaw and the fireplace. Rather than destroying them, we sculpt them into extremely clean landscape elements and magnificent specimens. Our signs are all made from olive wood from our living trees. The metal dump truck planters were saved from going to the dump. All of the furniture is made from recycled pallets. The orange tree not reborn but repurposed as food source for the koi. The koi produce waste which is used as fertilizer.

Elements in Transition
The design philosophy which uses both traditional and contemporary elements is called “transitional.” Balancing traditional and contemporary elements creates a pleasing combination of opposites. Delight in this space, intimately experience it and explore the elements of wood, fire, earth, metal, water, color texture, scale and lines as they fit together in a balanced transition.

Garden to Table
Every garden is unique and the best reflect the personalities of their owners. This one belongs to a loving gardener who is aware of our water challenges but also enjoys home grown vegetables and beautiful whimsy, as well.

Recycle, Repurpose—Go Green!
As the earth and its resources continue to dwindle, we must seek out creative and alternative means to keep our landscape green. By repurposing items and creatively reusing them we can begin to do our part. This idea of repurposing can be applied to the garden. Waterwise plants are combined with recycled containers or even pallets to create furniture or garden walls to add elements of interest.

Back Country Spring
Early spring in San Diego County’s back country. Hike to the desert edge to discover seasonal waterfalls surrounded by spring flowers. Right now conditions are perfect for outdoor activity, when the desert comes “alive” where the rocky eastern slopes meet the desert floor. For the lucky few who take the time, it can be an unforgettable experience.

Angle of Repose
Rain drop sounds from the focal water feature, mood lighting and music sets the stage for a sanctuary garden. Clean lines define each outdoor room and bringing a level of sophistication with the beauty of simplistic ideas. Think of it as an angle of repose- a special get away from the outside world in your own back yard. Sit back, relax and let time stand still...

Before…I knew and After…I learned
Before the drought I used to think, "If I can afford the water bill, isn't it my choice to use as much as I want?" It's not that simple anymore. Now I have learned that how much water I use, effects how much water is left for others. I have also learned that I don’t have to give up beauty when I take action to use less. See the transformation from water hog Before to drought tolerant After and around the corner see how to reuse materials destined for the landfill. Repurposing things will change the way you look at everything! And when you reduce or reclaim water you will know you are making a difference in the world.
