I have had several companies service my residential outside lighting over the past 10 years and after most of them became less and less reliable, I stumbled upon John Souza at Alexia Lighting Design. John has done our additions and maintenance over the past 3 years and has been extremely reliable with expert recommendations and expert workmanship. His attention to detail is truly comforting.

Living Rooms Design and Landscape Design

Chastity Fabry

‘Living Rooms’ is my landscape design concept to extend the living space inside your home into the outdoors beyond — providing more usability and enjoyment from your yard.

Just as you have rooms within your home designed for specific uses, outdoor spaces can be designed to not only enhance your views, but also create a variety of usage options.

Hardscaping, plants, trees and special outdoor features combine to add livable square footage to your home. And water-wise plants can give your yard a lush green look year-round, even in the challenging desert climate of the Southwest.

Whether it’s a personal retreat for relaxation, a multi-use space for entertaining or a center for family activities – every Living Rooms Landscape Design solution is tailored for each client and their specific needs and desires, creating outdoor spaces that compliment their interests.

I invite you to explore some of the Living Rooms Landscape
