The homeowners in Harveston (Murrieta, CA) had seen my work in the area and asked if I could assist them with the design and planning of their upcoming landscape project. The scope of their project was fairly simple-they wanted to add more living space for a future BBQ island and play area for their children as well as a matching sidewalk leading past the gate. Their house was originally a model home and they needed a design that would not compromise their existing hardscape and be able to complement the distinct Tuscany style of the house and backyard.
Rather than trying to match the existing “acid finish” and grey color of the existing patio- We decided to do the opposite and make a distinct contrast with the new concrete by going with a richly colored and stamped concrete look.
We chose Harvest Gold from the Davis Color Company, a slate texture and smooth bands to separate the two areas.
The Harvest Gold matches the exterior paint of the house and provides for a rich contrasting stamped texture.
We also used Sonic Tubes to create custom forms around the existing trees. Existing valves and drainage were moved and electrical and gas lines installed for a future BBQ.
