Sunny yard in SoCal

This couple was really looking to make full use of their rear yard so that they could lounge poolside and take advantage of living in sunny SoCal. They lean towards a European, monochromatic style, so we went to town on their yard, balancing practicality with aesthetics. The client wanted permeable pavers to reduce impact on their storm drain system, as well as to withstand the California tremors and ground settling. Permeable pavers come in many styles, our favorite find was the Orco Plaza Stone concrete pavers which complemented their yard beautifully.
