Our Approach

When we first met the homeowners they had just purchased their dream vacation home and saw incredible potential for the property. Coming from New Jersey, they wanted to embrace the warm weather and sunshine and create a lush, tropical escape in their own back yard.

One of the features of the yard the homeowners wanted to be sure to save was the tiki hut, as it would be the perfect space to practice yoga or have a morning cup of coffee. Other than that, the entire property was overhauled inside and out. By the time we were through, there was beautiful curb appeal including a new driveway, raised planters, landscaping, and landscape lighting. We were sure to include some citrus trees for the homeowners to enjoy and share with friends! In the back yard, we created an intimate entertaining area featuring screened and open-air patio space, a simple outdoor kitchen, and a pergola. The entire back yard is filled with lush, tropical plantings, as well as a meandering gravel and stepping stone path leading to the tiki hut. The Cypress tree in the middle of the yard is stunning when lit up at night! It is truly a space to forget the stresses of the day, kick up your feet, and enjoy the ‘vacation’ vibe.
