A tiered patio with cozy conversation areas, a rose garden and water features are among the highlights of a recently completed landscape project by Mac Landscaping of Las Vegas.

Mike Newman, president and designer, said the landscape was designed to take advantage of the golf course views behind the home, as well as create views out of every window. He also created a semitropical courtyard at the home’s front entrance.

The completed project debuted at a recent event to show area residents how to create a colorful-yet-water-efficient landscape.

Newman’s design transformed a sloped yard with very little landscaping into tiered patios including one with a fire pit, a rose garden, a water feature and plenty of water-efficient native plants.

“I’m completely thrilled,” said homeowner Marilyn Gubler.

She said she is particularly happy with the way the yard was divided into areas and is looking forward to spending time sitting by the fire pit and seeing the roses climb up the trellis outside her bedroom window.

Gubler said her only requirements in creating the landscape were that it be drought-tolerant and have no lawn, although Newman did add a small area with artificial turf.

Newman said all the stones used to create the patios and accent walls are the same as those used throughout the house to provide a cohesive look.

Additionally, Gubler hired a muralist, whose work inside the home incorporates some of the same plants that are in the landscape.
