Room with a View

Greey Pickett gives us a breathtaking example of beauty, function, and peace. With a cacti garden (complete with a walk path) that contrasts beautifully with the patch of greenery – perfect for outdoor playtime or a little outdoor yoga – and offers a stunning view of the mountains in the distance.

Sunny Waters

Two-Toned Modernity

Venetian Outdoors shows us how to blend the best of both worlds – with structured dessert plants, gravel, greenery, and comfort, this two-toned yard offers plenty of seating and opportunity to BBQ or just enjoy a night under the stars.

Classic, Squared.

Guided Home Design also takes on the challenge of blending greenery with the hot, Phoenix sun. With a beautiful water fountain, plenty of hard plant life, and grass with a pleasing-to-view, perfectly placed walk path. Comfy seating surrounds a charming fire pit.

Peaceful Shade

Warren Architecture does a great job of giving a small yard a comfy patio, plenty of shade and plant life, and just a hint of solitude. Together with pops of lighting, this outdoor dreamscape is perfect for you, two, or the whole family.

Gravel and Grace

ArchitecTor gives us a little bit of everything; greenery and grass, gravel and walk paths, a pool with lounge chairs, and an outdoor fireplace to light up the night. Subtle lighting helps to make this the perfect outdoor escape for nighttime fun!

Lush & Lively

Trees, Peaks, & Good Seats

Moon Valley Nurseries knows what’s up with this fantastic blend of elegance and nature. Simple seating around a stone fire pit is sectioned off for functionality, but still offers plenty of views and a spacious grassy area for plenty of running around.

Open Elegance

Pascale Land Design gives us a Mediterranean feel. With beautiful, hardy plant life, plenty of gorgeous trees, a fountain, and plenty of open space, this design is perfect for all types of families.

Concrete, Cacti, and Open Skies
