contemporary courtyard

Our clients were looking to maximize the use of their small courtyard. We added a low stucco wall filled with easy to maintain, low water succulents. The Mexican beach pebble surface is permeable, so no drains are required in the concrete. We built an IPE wood bench at the firepit with storage below, and a cover for the existing AC unit. We also replaced all the large overgrown shrubs with low growing succulents - now the stunning view beyond the glass is the focal point.
