Bungalow Garden Courtyard

Los Gatos, CA

We designed an entry arbor and picket fence and organized the landscape for the front yard of this Los Gatos Craftsman cottage. The entry arbor makes use of detailing seen on the front porch of the historic cottage.

The arbor, paths, irrigation, and lighting were designed by us and installed by Brian Milligan. The landscape itself was designed and installed by Kelly Loughran.

The back yard of this house was as neglected as the front yard had been. Starting with a wonderful old fig tree as the locus we added a BBQ structure, remodeled the garage, and tied it all together with new interlocking stone paver paths and patios.

The old 4-car garage was remodeled into a 2-car garage with office/guest quarters attached. We added a lattice “summer room” and patio to give an evening living area at the rear of the property. The lattice work of the summer room matches that of the front porch of the house.
