We have an triangular backyard that needs a big overhaul. We need a designer that knows about trees and plants. Our southern California backyard has full sun dusk till dawn. We want lush landscaping that would give us privacy from our neighbors that would also give us shade. We like to blend in fruit trees and usable plants such as manderine, lime, cumquat for shades, and passion fruit and squash for vines (these are all suggestions) along with drought tolerant plants. A fireplace and jacuzzi is a must. Plus we need a custom modern patio awning. Some hardscaping would be good to give the backyard different heights but usable like a bench. The current hardscape plus the planter boxes we have will remain, although the planter boxes can be moved. We need some furniture placement suggestions for a large dining area, lounge area, hammock, and a possible playgroud. We also want to have a large grassy area for kids to run around. The feel of the backyard should be organic and modern with a mix of concrete, wood, grass, decomposed granite gravel, and plants. The backyard needs to be kid and pet friendly as well.
