Whether you live in a bustling city like Santa Monica or along the coast of Hermosa Beach, you have the unique ability to enjoy the delightful weather southern California is famous for. Instead of staying holed up inside, we encourage you to take activities like relaxing, entertaining, and even cooking outdoors! How can one do this? By designing and implementing one of these top terrace designs, you could have the perfect space for you and yours.
If you have the pleasure of living right on the coast, you can implement an infinity terrace. Like an infinity pool, this terrace is designed to appear that it just drops off into the ocean, providing a dazzling and magical visual. Add in a couple of umbrellas, comfy lounge chairs, and some potted plants, and you will have a personal tropical paradise.
Roof Top Terrace
Southern California homeowners frequently design flat-topped roofs homes to increase livable space, but it often gets underutilized. You can design a rooftop terrace to suit a variety of needs, whether you want to sunbathe in peace, grow a garden, or create an entertainment space for friends.
Why limit yourself to simply one level? With a skilled hardscaper, you can create a multi-level terrace in your outdoor space. Whether you want to divide your terrace spaces into different functions or have a charming flow, you would be amazed at the possibilities. You could even connect a rooftop terrace with a ground-level terrace by using a lovely staircase, hanging lights, and creeping plants.
One of the downsides of living in a highly-populated area can be the lack of access to nature. Creative landscapers can bring a bit of nature home to you through the creation of a garden terrace. In a garden terrace, you can have raised plant beds, terraced plant life, hanging plants, and so much more. Make yourself an escape without ever leaving home.
Speaking of high-density areas, do you crave privacy while you enjoy your outdoor space? Of course! No one wants a nosey neighbor or random stranger to peer into their outdoor space as they play with their children or sunbathe. You can create a private terrace through the use of walls, screens, hedges, fences, trees, and more.
Another downside to southern California can be the intense summer heat. You want to be outside, but it is simply too hot to enjoy. Utilizing screened terraces can provide much-needed shade. Additionally, a glassed-in terrace can give access to sunshine and gorgeous views with all the pleasures of indoor climate control.
