Berkeley Classic

Roxy Wolosenko in Pleasant Hill, CA on Houzz

A new front yard completely transforms a Berkeley home and creates a safe, comfortable and beautiful entry into the house.

An ivy covered hillside, narrow driveway  and broken concrete walkway was a 1950's front yard legacy. New front steps, walkways and landings tiled in Connecticut Bluestone cleaned up and updated the yard. A custom arbor broke up the very tall front wall of the house and colorful plantings made the entire new yard smart and pretty.

A previously unused side yard was the sunniest spot and a perfect location for raised vegetable beds.

The sloped and overgrown backyard was regraded and a flat lawn area created. A Connecticut Bluestone topped retaining wall provides additional seating as well as a clean perimeter for a smart new tile patio.
