San Jose / Dry Creek

DuBridge Landscape Architecture, aka, DuBridge Design, was brought into this job, the prestigious Dry Creek Rd area of San Jose, during the closing months of house construction. The first thing we did was to pull the driveway to the far left instead of the current drive up the middle. This created better access to the carport/garage and a dramatic pedestrian approach to the grand front entry. We also incorporated two pedestals on either side of the entry archway which helped unify the architecture with the entry walk and landscape – we’re still hoping the owners will place Greek urns on each. With the new driveway location we were then able to dedicate the yard to beautiful landscaping, raised terraces, a “cigar smokers” patio and an outdoor fireplace. In the backyard we developed an arbor, outdoor kitchen, pool, spa, lawn and a private in-laws patio.
