“I love spending time outside, whether it is reading a book on a cozy armchair or sharing a meal with friends, and love to encourage our clients to do the same,” says Sacha McCrae, founder of San Clemente’s Living Gardens Landscape Design (livinggardenslandscapedesign.com; shoplivinggardens.com). After growing up in the gardens of her family’s London, England, home, then a stint in Spain and extensive travels through Europe, McCrae landed in southern Orange County in 2000 and has since been dressing up the outdoor spaces of O.C.’s elite. Her full-service landscape firm offers sustainable practices and goes beyond plant life to outfit spaces with elevated outdoor furniture as well. “Our rattan collection is designed to inspire calm and relaxation,” she says of the maintenance-free line, which can be left outside year-round. “We like to combine the neutral palette with throw pillows in soft blues, grays and aquas to create a modern beachy feel. Pair these with our ambient lighting and a fire feature to extend your time outside on cool summer nights.”
