Creating and installing beautiful outdoor living spaces is our favorite thing to do at Southwest Tree Care & Landscape Design. Recently, we were able to design an entire front and back yard space for a home in Escondido, CA that included new landscaping, artificial, turf, a pool, patio, walkway, and much more.

Learn more about this project we completed on time and on budget for this homeowner.


We first met with the homeowner to learn their needs and wants for the new space.

As with any project we complete, our first step is to meet with the homeowner to discuss their needs and wants. Once we learned exactly what they wanted to see in their new space, we created a landscape design for them to review and approve.

They wanted a space where they could thoroughly enjoy the outdoors with a low maintenance yard, so we incorporated all of that into the design. After the design was approved, we got to work.


Artificial turf provides an always-green, low-maintenance yard for this Escondido property.

For their lawn, we opted for artificial turf installation. Using fake grass is an excellent choice because the grass will always be green in all conditions and doesn't require much maintenance.

Artificial grass also drains well, so when the homeowner does need to wash it off periodically, it won't create a mess. There are also no weeds or potential harmful insects when the turf is fake, which creates a relatively risk-free yard for this family.


A custom pool and spa will offer extra entertainment value for family, friends, and guests.

Our team built a custom pool and spa for this family, who also wanted a slide leading into the water. This area will definitely increase the entertainment value of their yard and will help boost property value as well. Along with entertaining, a pool also offers a fun way to get in some extra exercise.

We also added in a waterfall in the far corner of the pool.


Landscape plants were selected for their beauty and their low maintenance.

Our teams carefully selected plants that are beautiful but also low-maintenance for the landscaped areas of the front and back yards.

With extensive landscaping in the front and back yards, we opted to use plants that were low-maintenance. This gives the homeowner a space that's beautiful without the need for extensive watering or other tasks that come along with other types of plants. We used a variety of palms and other small shrubs.


Their outdoor kitchen and patio were custom-made for the property using quality, durable materials.

Along with the pool, we also created a new patio and outdoor kitchen area that includes a grill, counter space, a sink, a bar area, and storage. This allows them to eat and cook outside, as their new patio has ample area for seating and tables.

We also added in a walkway that extends through the sloped area of their backyard. This walkway allows them to enjoy their entire property. Each hardscape element was made with durable, high-quality materials.
