Hillside Residence In San Jose, CA

This backyard was all about entertaining family and friends – the view was a bonus! We took a disjointed existing backyard during a time of extensive interior renovation and completely re-worked the exterior.  Included in the design is a new outdoor kitchen, shade structure, patios, fireplace, pool, spa, planting and lawn. We editing existing trees to provide visual corridors and added trees to eclipse undesirable views. All this and being mindful of the rare opportunity to include much of the Santa Clara Valley below and the Santa Cruz Coast range beyond as the backdrop to summer evening entertainment.
