Residential Landscape Galleries
A custom-designed and built home in the exclusive ‘Canyons at High Desert’ posed the challenge of creating a landscape to match. The client requested a showy entry and a backyard designed for entertaining their guests.
The owner of this house in High Desert complained of a small, hot west-facing back yard that nobody in the family cared to spend time in! The clients desired shade and an extended patio for an outdoor living area.
The foothills of the Sandia Mountains offer challenges to building and landscaping appropriately. The unimproved sloping backyard facing southwest was very hot, and rabbits would eat anything they tried to plant.
This Placitas landscape was redone to accommodate a new circular driveway. The new design was required to retain the slopes and create a sophisticated entry to the house.
The owner of this home in the UNM area needed to have the landscaping upgraded in both the front and back yards. They were ready to reduce the size of lawn and low-maintenance was the main requirement.
Looking at this front yard you would never guess the client received a substantial xeric rebate from the City of Albuquerque Water Authority for removing over 2,000 square feet of lawn.
