Shade Structures

Extend your family’s use of outdoor spaces by reducing harmful UV rays and keeping temperatures down with aesthetically pleasing and architecturally complementary shade solutions. Choose from a wide array of pergolas, gazebos, free standing shade structures, awnings, and tree and vegetation options to throw some shade anywhere you please.

Retaining Walls

Whether your goal is to prevent soil erosion, mitigate hilly, unusable areas, or add visually appealing focal points to your landscape, we can suggest the optimal orientation and materials to enhance the terrain around your home. When thoughtfully designed as an integral part of the topography, retaining walls add beauty while creating usable terraces for planting, gardening or patioed spaces for relaxing.

Fences + Custom Carpentry

The addition of enclosures or permanent structures expands the possibilities of your outdoor living space and adds value to your property. Our expertise in carpentry, stonework and landscape design can craft a deck, fence, seating area, cabana, pool house, or storage structure to fully realize your vision.

Fire Features

For a dramatic touch and to ward off the evening chill, the addition of a fire feature can provide a romantic, campfire vibe anywhere you choose. We’ve created custom outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, bowls, and gas-fed or electric patio heating systems for homeowners throughout the Central Coast.
