Hourian would like to incorporate flagstone the Preators had left over from their pool redo to create an open, seamless space. He also suggests transforming the garage area into a garden motorcourt area having large squares with grass planted in between. Ferner and Kroger’s design pays special attention to the dogs' needs. The garage area will become an attractive area for the dogs, using broken pieces of stone with grass in between. They also include a dog run by the air conditioning unit. The highlight of their plan is a natural rock waterfall which would flow directly into the pool. Mitch Kalamian's classic and clean design brings the existing flagstone into the driveway area and continues the flow to the patio. Mitch also incorporates a low, curving planter wall that would follow the length of the property. A finishing touch is a modern water cement feature that can be viewed from the living room.
