“This outdated Tarzana home had one of the worst backyards we had ever seen! The client hated the small spa, old brick and lack of anything interesting. “Can you fix it?”

Challenge accepted!

We converted the undersized spa into an awesome fire feature and built a new raised Jacuzzi with a swim up cast concrete bar. To modernize the project, we added a Baja Shelf, a sheer Waterfall and Pebblesheen interior.

A family friendly yard, this project includes an outdoor basketball court, complete with Plexipave coating and striping.

The outdoor kitchen is constructed of polished cast concrete with a clean, contemporary designed edge. Outdoor concrete counters area easy to care for and low maintenance. The landscape was installed using low maintenance succulents and drip irrigation.

Homeowner Testimonial


“Scott Cohen is a design genius. He was able to reimagine our old back yard (Fake-stone water fountain and a one-person spa- yikes) and transform it into a modern and functional resort style yard. We wanted a new pool and a larger spa that looked like they have always been there, and we got exactly what we asked for. It’s new, it’s modern, it’s not ostentatious. We love it. The only thing to note is that it took a little longer than expected. Partly due to a necessary upgrade to our electrical panel that was unexpected. We gave Scott a five start review because we love the end result and we think the design was truly impressive. However, we have to agree with previous review posted by Caroline W about materials selection and some communication issues, especially toward the end of the project. But yes, Scott was responsive even after project was completed.”

We are flattered by the volume of requests for consultations we are currently receiving daily. It’s nice to be popular, but due to overwhelming demand we are currently accepting projects only in the brand-new construction neighborhoods in which we are actively working; Westcliffe Toll Brothers (Porter Ranch), Canyon Oaks & Encore Toll Brothers (Chatsworth), Hillcrest Toll Brothers (Porter Ranch), The Canyons Toll Brothers (Porter Ranch), Deerlake Ranch (Crestley and Landsea homes in Chatsworth), and Sterling Hills Pulte Homes (West Hills).

Outside of new construction, we have a “Special Projects Consultation Wait List” for clients with unique high-end projects with budgets over $200,000, that don’t mind waiting a bit for us to catch up.
