A coastal-inspired backyard escape

A large home's seaside bungalow style inspired a design for a family that loves the outdoors―especially the coast.  During the planning process, Bud Stuckey researched coastal plants and designs, visited a nursery not far from the house, and drove around the area to see which existing plants thrive in Esparto's valley climate.

The plan features three settings for outdoor living: a patio just outside the family room, a satellite deck, and a cozy firepit area. A dry creek bed, built of boulders and smaller stones, connects these spaces. Two lawn areas where children can play frame the east and west sides of the yard.
