Mid-Century Desert Landscape - Bullhead City, AZ

Our client wanted a landscape that leaned more mid-century Palm Springs than desert. Since we've done both this was a great project for us to work on. Our first task was to help locate the new swimming pool within the small backyard. Then we set about designing the outdoor spaces around the pool which included a fire pit area and a space for chaise lounge chairs. We also added an extra space for a hammock. The plant palette includes a few desert staples like golden barrel cactus and ocotillo, but is mainly focused on flowering shrubs, grasses and succulents. The barrel cactus and red agave are located within Cor-ten steel raised planter boxes at either end of the pool. Low voltage landscape lighting, highlighting certain plants, completes the design.

This project was a referral from Exactly Designs, an interior design firm in Michigan that specializes in mid-century projects. We have referred clients to them as well.
