Napa Backyard Entertaining Space

This project in Napa took an older garden that hadn’t been updated since the home’s construction and integrated an outdoor kitchen, fireplace and redesigned swimming pool into a new outdoor entertaining space.

“Thank you for the great work you did on our outdoor entertaining area. My husband and I feel like we are in our own private resort every time we step into the back yard, and our guests have raved about the transformation. I especially appreciate the time and effort your firm put into developing and managing all the details of a complicated project. We are delighted with the results.” -Susan, Napa


As a designer who values working through a team approach, I had the pleasure of collaborating with O’Connell Landscape recently on a project located on the Silverado Trail in Napa Valley, California.  I found the company, including Michael O’Connell and his team of workers, professional, responsive, and competent.  The job, which required installing a hillside retaining wall, elevated deck, large patio, outdoor kitchen and fireplace; in addition to a drainage system, landscaping and irrigation, were completed in a thorough, timely manner.  The O’Connell team was always pleasant and cooperative to work with and all members genuinely seemed to care about the project and it’s successful completion.  Michael O’Connell was well prepared and extremely organized at meetings and paid great attention to detail throughout the process.  He was a respectful and enthusiastic team player which made my experience a very positive one in collaborating on this project.  I highly recommend O’Connell Landscape in terms of construction on exterior hardscape and landscape projects.
