Before & AN AMAZING AFTER




coming from Sunset Magazine, this lovely story of complete
transformation of a family's backyard in San Jose, California.
a teen landscape design student, with a bit of professional help
and assistance from her siblings, took the dismal small space,
which you see below....





a local landscaper designer drew the plans...
the kids jackhammered the concrete slab out completely ...
they found an artisan who could do masonry,

and below are a couple of images of the AFTER...



 the daughter who inspired all this is now a student
at Cal Tech going for her landscape degree,
she worked as an intern for
Sunset Magazine
last summer.

are you as impressed with this as I?






totally unrelated....

after all that work this is where you would want to be, isn't it?

a Corona or a nice Pinot Grigio...

ahhhhh, life is good....
