This contemporary remodel took a boring outdated concrete jungle and turned it into a modern masterpiece! The home-owner was enthusiastic about creating impressive curb appeal and so the name for the project just came naturally; “Curb your Enthusiasm”.

We demolished the old driveway, brickwork and entry landings and replaced it with modern lineal plank pavers, cast concrete, ceramic tiles and stepping pads, all in 50 shades of gray. The client wanted to keep the front Pepper and Olive trees and challenged us to come up with a way to make them look like they were always part of the plan. The focal water feature artfully encompasses the Pepper tree and matches the scale of the front entry. Five copper cannon scuppers spill into an all tile water feature that lights beautifully at night. It’s important that water features look good, but they also need to sound good too and this feature accomplishes just that. As you approach the property visitors enjoy the sounds of water and the visual eye candy of the contemporary water fountain.

The custom mailbox supports a floating pot design, one of our signature, sought after designs.

Our client says neighbors stop and photograph his home all the time. It’s a real compliment to our design build work.

This is our second time working for this client. Their backyard project was built over 10 years ago and included a very custom fireplace and outdoor shower. See more here:

Homeowner Testimonial


My wife and I recently remodeled our home, making it contemporary and soon after we decided to look into redoing our front yard, both landscape and hardscape to match. Twelve years ago we contacted the Green Scene to remodel our backyard. That experience was so pleasant, we did not even have to think twice as to who to hire for the front remodel. We called Scott Cohen and he came to the house to get our thoughts and look at the yard. We gave him total freedom to design the front except two musts. He had to include our two favorite trees, a beautiful Brazilian Pepper and a very mature Olive tree and he had to incorporate a water feature. Two weeks later, we met with Scott. We really believe he is a design genius. He nailed it on the first drawing. It was exactly what we asked for and much more. The Green Scene team is wonderful. They are professional, courteous, tidy, and left our home every day clean and they really limited all the inconveniences as much as possible. The project is now complete and it turned our home more beautiful than we ever dreamed and most importantly our two trees look as if they were always part of the design. We get compliment after compliment from our neighbors and even total strangers. We often see people stop in their cars to take pictures. We could not have asked for a better experience and never dreamed that our end result would be so perfect.
