Before and After in Crown Point

After:

Before:

This home in Crown Point had a rather non-descript concrete walkway and stepped entrance. The distance from the sidewalk to the home was relatively narrow. Increasing the walkways width makes the entrance to the home more of a statement as a destination. The Brazilian slate tile adds warmth. This project was desgined, built & then maintained by Torrey Pines Landscape Company.

Before and After in Carmel Valley, CA






This Carmel Valley home's front door was tucked back between the side of the garage and the property line. The original sidewalk was utilitarian but uninviting. Visitors were a bit confused with which side walk leading off the driveway would get them to the front door. We created a gracious curvy entrance that welcomes while making use of the limited space. We affectionately refer to this job as the Cozy Calico Corner because the stone colors, selected by the owner, create a Mexican-influenced patch work which gave a nod to the existing inlaid tiles in the wall. Stay tuned to our blog to see the Outdoor room we designed and built in the back garden.
