To preserve a native oak tree, the Torrey Pines Landscape Company renovated the central courtyard to lessen water usage and create a background tapestry of plants appropriate to its microclimate.

Designed as a second home, this 10,000-square-foot luxury estate has a Mediterranean-inspired design that includes a tile roof and stone accents on the facade. Inside, every room is strategically situated to capture lakefront views. A cobblestone drive provides access to two parking pads and a four-car garage.
This home was designed to be grand enough to impress, but low-key enough to make people feel at home. The underlying theme of this home was to make it so wonderful that when the clients' extended family came to visit they would never want to leave, and with the home's flowing spaces large enough for over 100 people while maintaining more intimate spaces for 10 people or less, designers have achieved their goal.
Moroccan-inspired moldings and bright patterned tile lends an Old World feel to this outdoor kitchen. The crew of HGTV's Bang for Your Buck added a stainless steel grill, gas cooktop, sink and dishwater for thoroughly modern cooking power.
