Hardscapes Marion Avenue, Palo AltoThe hardscape features designed and constructed for this backyard renovation include a masonry bench, a small flagstone patio and landing, and an expanded paver footprint. Also added were a water fountain, low-voltage lighting, drip irrigation/fertigation, high-efficiency sprinklers for the lawn, and a WiFi smart controller.Magnolia Drive, Palo AltoThe original yard was half-covered with beautiful green-stained concrete. We saw-cut and removed most of the concrete. We made pathways from pieces of the recycled concrete. This is a clever and attractive way to recycle concrete.Sierra Drive, Palo AltoThis lovely wall doubles as a bench and complements the flagstone patio that we installed.
