Our approach to landscape design is one that centers around creativity, customer centricity, material selection and a common sense approach to construction and costing issues. What this means for you is that we design and build spaces that are explicitly created to continually inspire you to spend time and celebrate life in, by yourself, with the two of you,  and especially with friends, family and loved ones.

“I hired Steven last year and have him clean up a big mess of a job to rid my backyard of an old patio, spa tub and cracked concrete. Steven did a wonderful turnkey job demolishing the old backyard and designing and building one from scratch.”

“We met Steven from Opulands in Los Gatos at the rotary. Steven came over the next day and spent over several months a lot of time with my husband and I designing what turned out to be an awesome new backyard. We love the paver patio, fire pit, smoker and BBQ island. My 2 year old son is in love with the lawn, seating benches and his new play area.”

Yes, We're Qualified. Certified Too!

When choosing a company for your outdoor remodel – it’s important not only to choose a licensed contractor, but to consider what accreditation and certifications they have earned. Renovating your front or back yard is a project that most homeowners only do once, so choosing a company you can rely on to get the job done right is critical.
