This Lockett Ranches home was lacking in an outdoor entertainment and living space. The homeowners wanted an inviting space for time with the family and entertaining guests. This space included an outdoor kitchen with an outdoor BBQ and drop in cooler by Bull BBQ with custom granite countertops by Stone Creations. The kitchen rested upon a patio constructed with locally harvested chocolate flagstone. The existing concrete patio was covered by a custom-built pergola completed with stone veneer pillars to match the home. A natural gas firepit off the patio area was constructed on top of a locally sourced chocolate flagstone patio. This area was designed to be another inviting usable space for entertaining and enjoying cool mountain evenings in Northern Arizona.
This existing client wanted to beautify her backyard. She wanted to create an outdoor living space with sustainability in mind. The goal was to create a relaxing, beautiful, and quiet environment, while incorporating the use of rainwater for irrigation. Perennial plantings, aspen trees, and flowering shrubs were utilized to enhance the backyard. A trellis with climbing vines was installed to create privacy and serenity.
The goal of this project was to rehab the flagstone patios, walkways, and stairs of this early 20th century home that is on the Historic Registry. The objective was to preserve the character of the original architecture. Locally harvested chocolate flagstone was utilized to create congruency between the natural stone of the home and the appearance of the patios. Most images contained in this portfolio are before and after images of the project.
This project in Coyote Springs was designed to be an extension of the living and entertaining space for this growing family. A large paver patio was installed as usable space for the family. The paver patio also provided a surface for a hot tub, an outdoor kitchen, and a firepit seating area. The feather rock and custom concrete tops were provide by our local partner, Green Mountain Construction. The galley kitchen was complete with a gas BBQ and side burner, outdoor refrigerator, and a kegerator. Custom concrete countertops were requested for their versatility and beauty. The turf area and the wood chip playground area were installed to create an oasis for the children, which is surrounded by native plantings opening to the forest beyond. These combined features created a great entertainment and play area for this family to complement their lifestyle.
This Cherry Hill home backyard was overgrown and was greatly in need of a new landscape. The backyard was essentially scraped down to the dirt and completely redesigned. The homeowner desired a usable space to enjoy the cool summer nights and for entertaining friends and family. This design included installation of a large paver patio with a seat wall and a natural gas firepit. The patio was also used for a hot tub pad. An irrigation system with a rain sensor was installed for the new sod area and the raised garden bed. Gravel was installed around the landscape to create a finished appearance. Locally harvested chocolate flagstone was utilized for stepping stones from the patio to the raised garden bed. Native plantings were installed to beautify the space.
This new landscape installation was designed to complement this custom built home in Pine Canyon Golf Club. Landscape berms were created for privacy and depth. Native and drought-tolerant plants were planted with irrigation to enhance the landscape. Locally-harvested flagstone was installed to create functional pathways. Native limestone boulders were placed throughout the landscape, along with Limestone rip rap swales for drainage. Harmony Builders built a custom Telluride Stone water feature to which Deep Roots installed the pump and plumbing fittings for functionality. Annual plantings at the entry pillars were planted for seasonal color.
The goal of this project was to enhance this Lockett Ranches home with a variety of landscape elements. An existing concrete slab was overlaid with locally sourced Quartzite flagstone. A natural gas fire feature was constructed of malpais stones and boulders to create an inviting outdoor living space. Native plantings with irrigation and large evergreen trees were placed strategically for privacy. Native perennials and shrubs were utilized to complement the outdoor space and to create seasonal color.
The original front entryway was in need of major restoration to create a more inviting feel. A low voltage lighting system was installed to guide homeowners and guests down the long, winding driveway. Path lighting was installed to illuminate a newly constructed Quartzite flagstone walkway leading to the front door. Downward accent lights were installed to create splashes of illumination on the newly installed berms and plantings. Native and drought tolerant shrubs and perennials were installed along the meandering pathway leading to the front door.
At the front of the driveway, an address marker with lighting was installed to clearly mark the home. A berm, irrigation, and native shrubs were installed to create an inviting appearance to the entrance of the driveway. The before and after pictures highlight the dramatic transformation of this landscape.

Deep Roots Landscaping was a subcontractor for Castilleja Landscape and Design on this fantastic project. Lainie, owner of Castilleja Landscape and Design, designed this xeriscape project with native and drought tolerant plants and trees to compliment this amazing home. A low voltage lighting system equipped with smart technology was installed during the project to both accent landscape features and to illuminate the hardscape.
This job illustrated an amazing transformation from an unused space to an incredible outdoor living environment. A natural gas firepit was constructed with chocolate flagstone and locally harvested malapais veneer. The firepit is centered on a chocolate flagstone patio. A level area was enclosed with landscape timbers and a thick layer of soft fall wood chips was installed to accommodate a safe childrens’ playground area. A water feature was constructed with locally harvested malapais accented with perennial flowers and shrubs to create movement and a natural ambiance. The clients are enjoying relaxing in the beauty of the landscape. A big thank you to Ed Dunn at ED Studio for capturing these images.
The customers wanted more useable living space in their sloped, unmaintained backyard. A design was created to tier the sloped backyard with site harvested boulders and rocks. A formal chocolate Flagstone pathway and steps opens to a beautiful patio. A babbling pond-less water feature runs alongside the patio and pathway to create a serene, relaxing environment. Low voltage lighting was incorporated for functionality along the pathway and aesthetics within the water feature. Low voltage up lighting was used to accent native plants and trees. Native plantings were integrated in the design to bloom throughout the growing season. All native plants in the design are drought tolerant and low maintenance.
