Mediterranean or Tuscan garden design, tropical landscape design, xeriscaping and Asian garden design are just a few of our specialties.
Mediterranean or Tuscan garden design is very popular in Southern California because it offers a low-water landscape solution, pleasing to multiple senses. This fragrant landscape design often includes Lavender, Olive trees, Italian Cypress, Citrus trees, Iceberg Roses, Sage, Rosemary, Oregano, and Thyme. Known for boldness and simplicity, a Mediterranean or Tuscan garden design often uses a simple color palette of purplish blues and warm reds, brought into prominence by the use of large terracotta pots and vases. Our landscape designers will often utilize hardscape elements such as pavers, stone walkways, and colorful tiles to give your Mediterranean garden an old-world feel reminiscent of a charming little town in Italy.
Tropical landscaping is also very prominent in Southern California. Classic trademarks of tropical landscaping include palm trees, birds of paradise, bamboo, and bright exotic flowers. Imagine walking out into your backyard every day and feeling as if you had just wandered onto an elegant island resort. A tropical landscape can create a relaxing and enchanting atmosphere, ideal for entertaining guests. When you work with a design and build company such as Western Outdoor Design & Build, your landscape design can flow seamlessly into your structural design. We have designed countless tropical backyard landscapes that have included cabanas, outdoor barbecues, pavers and artificial turf. Working with a design and build company means you never have to venture outside our company to complete your vision of paradise.
Xeriscaping is extremely popular, especially in Southern California. With rising water costs, many homeowners have turned to xeriscaping to lower their utility bills and reduce their carbon footprint. Xeriscaping entails the creative use of hardscape and native and succulant plants to create a beautiful, low-maintenance, drought-tolerant landscape design. Our experienced landscape architects and garden designers specialize in planning out practical, efficient garden designs that use little to no water. Many homeowners have the misconception that all low-water landscaping is boring and plain, overusing concrete and cacti. Our landscape designers utilize a wide variety of colorful plants to create uniquely beautiful low-water backyard landscapes that will change the way you look at low-water landscape designs forever. Our designers often utilize the California Lilac, Foxtail Agave, Lemonade Berry shrub, Blue Eyed Grass, Blue Flame Aloe, Crown of Thorns, Peruvian Lilly, and Cleveland Sage, to name a few. We also use native Southern California wildflowers such as our state flower, the California Poppy, as well as Wild Lupines, Columbines, and Serbian Bellflowers. Ground covering options can include mulch, natural stone, bark, and beautiful ornamental grasses such as purple fountain grass, Deer Grass, Leymus and Rush.
Asian garden design is a broad category of landscape design which includes Zen gardens, Japanese gardens, Koi ponds, tea gardens and Japanese stroll gardens. Some characteristics of Asian garden design include Asian plants such as Cherry Blossoms, Japanese Maple, Ginkgo, Bamboo, Camellia, Azalea, Pine and mugo pine, as well as stone garden accents. Stone garden statues depicting Buddha, pagodas and lampposts are often used to create an environment of tranquility, dignity and grace- pillars of Asian garden design. A keen eye for balance and simplicity is essential in creating a successful Asian landscape design, which is why so many homeowners come to the professionals at Western Outdoor Design & Build to create the delicate and unique Asian landscape design they are searching for. Meandering stone paver paths are another trademark of Asian gardens. As a company specializing in pavers, Western Outdoor Design & Build can create the perfect hardscape to compliment your landscape design.
