Mid-Century Modern Landscaping in San Jose

Transforming the outdoor space for this 1960s iconic Eichler

After remodeling their home’s interior in 2019, the owners of this iconic 1960s Eichler wanted their outdoor spaces to epitomize the Mid-Century Modern landscaping vibe while leveling up their active alfresco lifestyle. Harrell Remodeling combined their evocative vision with our expertise, transforming the drab and commonplace into versatile and vibrant outdoor areas.

Top on their list: Upping the front yard ante with dynamic materials and drought-tolerant landscaping, revitalizing the atrium, and creating a multi-purpose backyard with a music studio, a climbing structure for their son, and a peaceful shaded patio.

Backyard

Yes! You can have it all, even in a small space!

Climb, play, relax, unwind, strum a few bars…this mid-century modern landscaping backyard is brimming with (scores of) endless possibilities.

Fort & Music Studio

What could be lurking at the peak? Functional, fun, and funky, the custom climbing fort conjures infinite wild (fantastical) adventures limited only by the (jungle of your) imagination.

Atrium

Well, hello there! Come on in!

A defining feature of Eichler homes, the atrium extends an enthusiastic open-air invitation to pop in for a neighborly visit. Melding organic materials and classic Mid-Century Modern details, this pleasingly peaceful passageway implores equal parts fancy footwork on its floors and moments of quiet reflection.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it wood planking? Timber sandstone tricks the eye and tantalizes the tootsies.

Front Yard

Curb appeal? We prefer charisma. And this home has it in spades.

With its bold bursts of color, meandering flagstone pathways, and the ideal spot to play favorite guitar licks on warm summer evenings, this Eichler enchants all who pass by.
