Residential LandscapingCreating a sophisticated entry on a sloping site

This Placitas landscape was redone to accommodate a new circular driveway (not an easy task on this sloping site). The new design was required to retain the slopes and create a sophisticated entry to the house.

The the central element of the landscape is mossrock and flagstone retaining walls framing a new set of concrete steps with pool coping brick treads. It leads seamlessly to the existing concrete walk. A larger courtyard was built for greater privacy from the road and new plantings open up the whole area for a cleaner appearance.
