Redesign of a steep, hot and dry slope was needed to create better access to new pool and entertainment areas. The multilevel design allows for many different uses.
Working with Ira at Rainscape Design was a delight. He is an excellent listener, has a keen eye for design and engages his clients in a very collaborative way. The result for us has been a beautiful, cost‐effective landscape that is well suited for our environment and requires minimal maintenance.
