Modern Rustic | Oakland

About This Project

This rustic backyard patio and garden space is located in Oakland’s Lakeshore neighborhood. The project featured a comprehensive remake of the landscape, including garage removal, extensive grading and the creation of outdoor play and dining areas.

Cast in place concrete forms steps and retaining walls, creating elevated garden beds which bring a colorful array of plants to eye level when sitting in the patio. Hardwood benches provide seating alcoves for hosting guests, and re-purposed wood was used to construct all of the fencing.
