Combining Modern Design and Zen to Create Lasting Peace

How many of us can boast a personal backyard paradise?

The Carriers requested moving water in their garden, so we designed and installed a 50-foot long stream. It meanders and winds itself around their backyard, the sound of rushing water soothing as it reaches your ears.

Black pine and Japanese maple stand proudly above us as we walk through. Lush ferns, jasmine, and irises border the stream, and sun orchids add accent colors as well. The cobblestone and boulders were hand-picked and arranged to give a natural feel to the garden.
