Sleek Dining

A planter wall that runs along the high retaining wall behind the dining area, creates opportunities for beautiful plantings. Plus, it prevents the family dog from digging.

Entertaining Made Easy

To avoid trips back into the house, a shelf was built into the wall for displays and to hold dishes for serving and eating.

Hip Plantings

A mix of rugged materials and desert cacti thrive in the hip outdoor setting.
