Dreams Of Summer

The solstice is behind us, which means the days will soon be getting longer and the nights will once again retreat to the dark hours of the morning. Unfortunately, winter’s reach here in southern California only intensifies in the months following December, meaning we’re in for more dreary, cloudy days and frigid nights ahead.

As we trudge through winter, many of us dream of the days ahead, where spring and summer shine bright like a beacon on an otherwise dark horizon. Gone are the days we Californians wish for ‘real weather’, here are the days we wish for a return to weeks on end of perfect sunny afternoons.

While we’re here wishing, we could be getting to work on projects that can enhance our outdoor environments and allow for us to better enjoy the long summer days. Landscaping projects can be lengthy endeavors, so all the better we take advantage of the cool cloudy days of winter to build a better yard for summer.

One major landscaping project we’ve been looking at recently is the installation of a backyard water feature installation. The sound of running water has always had a calming effect on me, so a little waterfall in my backyard has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember.

There are a multitude of different water features you can add to your yard, from the simplest fountain to a massive, multi-level koi pond. The only limiting factor is your imagination, your budget, and, of course, the help you hire on to implement your vision.

Good landscapers are hard to come by, as seems to be the case with most of the construction world. Luckily for our southern California readers, they don’t have to look far, as we are home to one of the best landscaping firms in the industry: Torrey Pines Landscaping.

Torrey Pines has won a ton of awards for their landscape designs in San Diego, most of which have transformed the landscape from tacky to extraordinary in the hills and beachfronts all over the city. Many of their projects have included the installation of water features both big and small, from spas to a yard-spanning river.

Whether you are looking for a water feature that you can swim around in or just enjoy the sound of a babbling brook in the midst of the arid hills of southern California, Torrey Pines can help you realize your vision of the perfect outdoor getaway for hot summer days. With a level of perfectionism and artfulness not commonly found in contracting companies today, you don’t want to miss out on getting help from a major up-and-coming force in the landscaping world.

While in winter’s icy grasp, its perfectly natural to think of brighter days in a not-so-distant future. If you’re looking to make those days shine even more starkly, give Torrey Pines Landscaping a call to make your landscape dreams a reality:
