Creating beautiful landscape designs and installing them is what we do best at Southwest Outdoor Services, so when this estate owner in Carlsbad, CA contacted us looking for a complete landscaping renovation, we were thrilled to do this project for them.

This full renovation included sod installation, pool construction, stone seating areas, custom landscape beds, and much more. Read to learn more about this extensive project.


A new pool area will add hours of fun to their outside time.

One of the biggest parts of the project was constructing a new pool area, complete with a patio and deck. This new pool not only adds to the overall property value, but also adds hours of fun and enjoyment for the property owner and their family. We also added in a covered spa by the pool and left plenty of room for some lounge chairs, too, so they can spend more time outside in our temperate climate.


Custom stonework was used to create steps, multiple seating areas, and walkways.

Our hardscape contractors used their extensive masonry knowledge to do some great custom stonework on this job. We built multiple walkways that lead to stone seating areas throughout the estate so that everyone will have nice outdoor retreats to relax in and created some custom stone steps as well. The seating areas include some nice, quality benches that blend in well with the surrounding landscape. We also placed some boulders in the new landscape beds for focal points and aesthetic value.

An LED outdoor lighting system was also put in to illuminate the property at night and increase safety and functionality of the space.


We transformed the lawn and landscaping with new sod and plant installation.

The estate owner also wanted us to renovate their lawn and landscape beds, so our lawn care crews came in with brand new sod and installed it for an instantly healthy and beautiful lawn, which transformed the inner courtyard of the estate.

Throughout the grounds, we also put in new custom landscaping beds, using beautiful plants that do well in our area of southern California. Our landscapers used various shrubs, trees, palms, and ornamental grasses for a gorgeous look.


The new irrigation system will keep the grass and plants in top condition.

Another important step in this project was adding in a new irrigation system. We placed the sprinklers strategically throughout the property to make sure each zone will be watered properly and the grass and plants will be as healthy as possible. Without correct watering, it will be tough for the landscape and sod to stay in top condition. This will be especially crucial during the first 14 days after sod is installed, as it needs routine watering during this time to establish itself.
