street painting
  Once a schematic design has been established, we move into the design development stage. Here, we prepare measured drawings of the site and apply the schematic concepts developed in the previous phase. This analysis allows us to evaluate the concepts and clarify design issues.
Front Yard,
Santa Clara,
Part 2
 We developed an unusual, inwardly-focused front yard using low-allergy plants. Once we worked out a sketch the clients liked, we brought the sketch into CAD and began work on choosing plants.
Back Yard,
San Jose,
 The yard is only forty feet wide and twenty feet deep, so we designed a landscape that uses optical illusion to suggest a larger yard. Enlarging tricks include a diagonal axis with forced perspective and curves to hide the true site dimensions.
