An incredible grove of Mesquite trees shade this picturesque backyard. The owners wanted to make the most of the Arizona weather and use their outdoor spaces throughout the year. A number of intimate spaces were created of varying scale to accommodate a flexible number of social engagements. They removed a pool that was no longer being used, that opened up a larger gathering space, while the Trex decking material was repurposed into a screen trellis that helped break-up the backyard into smaller spaces. A water feature was added against a colored accent wall to anchor the backyard while providing a respite of sound and calm. Accent and succulents provide a texture of planting with a low maintenance sensibility.
