Palm Desert Modern


Above: The existing yard aerial.     Below: Existing Conditions Base Plan.

The new owners of this Palm Desert home were looking to upgrade the existing landscape, add a pool, and increase the value of this investment property.  Understanding the owners’ needs, commitment to maintenance, and that a pool would dominate the rear yard, our designer created an angular design that maximized usable space that also allowed for a grand swimming pool. The designer worked to place existing boulders throughout the design to connect the home with the mountains in the distance and as striking sculptures. The owners here also wanted to include a sculpture that would make their personal style visible from the street and act as a way finding tool for visitors.  Given this criteria, the Think Outside Designer successfully created a plan that met both the owners’ functional and aesthetic needs.
