Southwestern Landscape

This adobe style home and landscape was built with a close eye on conservation. Natural stone walls and boulders effectively soften the sloped yard creating a meandering path through the native grass and colorful xeric plantings to the courtyard entry. The courtyard wall opens to an oasis filled with colorful perennials, the tranquil sounds of water, the warming glow of a fire, and plenty of patio space for entertaining.
