This back yard at River Island was all rocks and bare dirt, with water draining to the back door. We re-built it into a family-friendly eco-habitat ready for entertaining and relaxing!

Breech Residence

Exeter, CA. The front yard was completed in 2010, and the back yard was completed a year later, in Autumn of 2011. Owner-installed, including the stack stone and paver work in back yard. Some of the client goals included: low maintenance, low water-use, informal, mostly CA native species, interesting year-round, display spaces for owners' found-bone collection, space to air-dry laundry, space for fire pit, shade trees. Photos taken in August, demonstrating you can have an interesting and colorful yard in the Central Valley, even in summer!
