There are many ways to add shade to your outdoor space. You could go traditional, what
everybody else has...or you could try something new and unusual. Here at Pacific Shade Sails
we like to create shade using new and innovative shade solutions. When we started this
company we only offered one choice, shade sails. Now after 9 years in the business, we have
several shade options, all unique and cool in their own way.
Today we are spending a lot of time creating great shade with a product called SkySpan
umbrellas. These are not your typical umbrellas...oh no...these are beautiful structures that
look and feel like an umbrella. Originated in Australia and now licensed to be made in Georgia,
SkySpan umbrellas are made out of steel, aluminum and the canopies are a pvc membrane.
They are rated at 75mph when open and 95mph when closed. With this is a product, you can
add lighting, cooling, heating and logos to the canopy.
We have installed these at both residential and commercial locations. They are gaining in
popularity as the world gets to know them better. There are many colors to choose for the
frame and canopies.

gone As the ever-present drought continues to loom over most of California,
many residents are making the decision to do away with their water-
hogging lawns. But what are the alternatives?
Sophie Sears from Cal Wild Landscape Design collaborates closely with
Ben Huffines at Environmental Landscape to provide solutions for
customers looking for water-saving landscapes.
Tearing out your lawn can give you a blank slate, repurposing
how you use your outdoor areas. Your yard doesn't have to be
all plants . Rocks and other hardscapes provide dimension to
your yard and offer low maintenance.
For front yards, consider how you want to use your space. You may want to consider adding a pathway for better access to your home
or even a seating area for relaxing out front while you watch the kids play or visit with neighbors.
Water saving alternatives to
traditional turf lawns
The latest outdoor trends straight from
Cal Wild Landscape Design focuses on CA native and
drought tolerant plants. Their simple, low mainte-
nance designs use a variety of natural materials,
rocks and stone walls. Environmental Landscape pro-
vides the construction and installation of the designs.
Ben and Sophie work together with their clients
throughout the project ensuring everyone is on the
same page collaborating each step of the way on the
best possible solution for their clients.

Its ok to keep some lawn. A low or no-mow California native sod provides
a great alternative to those not willing to ditch their green lawns. This
native sod can be left to grow on its own or mowed like a traditional turf
lawn. Once established, it only needs to be watered a couple times a
week to keep its deep, green color. Native sod does well in partial shade or
full sun and recovers well from occasional wear. Its medium leaf texture
provides a deep glossy color that is also tolerant to cold temperatures.

A well designed outdoor space is both beautiful and functional.
When planning your outdoor areas consider how you will use
your space. Choose accent pieces that can double as storage for
frequently used items. Having these items conveniently stored
outside limits hauling everything back and forth.
An outdoor storage cabinet assists to discretely
stow away pool towels, sunscreen, hats and other
pool items. This coffee table wins an award for
extreme multi-purpose use! It can be used as a
coffee table, extra seating and storage. Garden
stools can also serve different functions. Use them
as end tables, a coffee table or extra seating.
