AREN'T WE FORTUNATE TO LIVE IN THE GOLDEN STATE!—California has the weather, and the
charisma to make it a vacation destination for the rest of the United States and the world.


Until last year, I had not heard of the term STAYCATION. 
However, the concept is not new to us at Natural Design.  In fact, our motto

With most VACATIONS, we have a destination that is fun and exciting with great weather.  From there, we take short excursions to see the sights and local points of interest. We usually travel hundreds, or even thousands of miles, for this week or two of "relaxing get away” each year.

 Why? We live in California, with some of the best weather, most beautiful scenery, and most interesting and exciting points of interest in the world! If only our homes had some of the amenities that the expensive resort hotels offered, we could extend that two week vacation to a year round staycation!  



Consider the advantages to preparing your home and yard for staycations: 

-  The dollars spent are invested in your LIFESTYLE and your HOME.
-  The  investment in your lifestyle  is returned year after year , for as long as you own your home.
-  The investment in your home is, of course, very tangible, and the dollars invested at some point will return to you.
-  An added benefit is the peace of mind that comes with your children enjoying their home as the PREFERRED gathering place, instead of the mall or someone else’s home.







A Natural Design Swimming Hole is the perfect start in creating a back yard that has an exciting vacation atmosphere. 

A Swimming Hole’s dramatic waterfalls, and unique sandy beaches, are the centerpiece of any yard.  Add to that some exotic lighting options, an outdoor kitchen BBQ area,  and you have a back yard resort.

Throw in some California sunshine and warm summer nights enjoying tropical  refreshments, and you  have a Staycation.  And you don’t have to fight your way through airports to get there!

Now is the time to get started building your new “Swimming Hole” to enjoy it this summer , and for years to come. Why Fly!

From all of us at Natural Design, have a great summer!
