At Tahoe Outdoor Living, we combine structural landscaping design elements with the beauty of our existing natural environment. Our contemporary designs recognize that today’s clients want unique natural landscapes that are environmentally friendly, easy to maintain, and incorporate sustainable practices.

Every garden is unique, and our Design + Build team will respond to your needs to create a stunning landscape. Our goal is to ‘bring your dreams outdoors’. Our lead landscape architect and designer, Paul Nanzig, draws inspiration from the beauty of the Sierra and is dedicated to creating the perfect landscape.

“Most importantly, we always listen carefully to what the family wants, to understand their physical and emotive needs. Do they want sound for ambience or to drown out other noises? Do they want motion for the feeling-a calm gentle flow or a rush and torrent to invigorate?”

“Our focus at Tahoe Outdoor Living is personal service; we constantly have our ‘eyes to the ground’ and stay on top of our customers landscaping needs. We provide what people want based on the limits of their budget, property and regulations. Tahoe Outdoor Living prides itself on designing and building landscapes, right the first time, with no hidden costs.”
