Woodsy Backyard, San Jose

Woodsy Backyard, San Jose

A complete rethink of this San Jose yard led to the removal of a fence that divided this large back yard into small areas.  The new area was designed to accentuate the 100 year old valley Oaks. A custom waterfall was constructed to create a relaxing background sound and a large Bocce court was constructed on the hillside to better utilize the space.

The project features: wooden trellis, well equipped barbeque/bar area, refurbishing of the existing swimming pool, flag stone patio, custom waterfall, bocce court.
