Client: Derek Evans


Location: Murjan Villa 1, Dubai Marina, Dubai


Project Type: Murjan Villa Landscape Design, Complete Garden Design, Outdoor Kitchen, Pergola, Dining Area, Outdoor Furniture, Dining Awning, Garden Features.


Duration: Villa 1 (Murjan Villas Landscape) took approximately 90 days to complete, including planning, design, approvals and construction.




Happiness’ and Derek’s Villa was built on a large corner plot of land.

Although they had a great deal of space to work with, their plot was full of many awkward slants. They knew their project required professional landscaping assistance to complete the intricacies of their complex design.



After conducting an extensive search online, and reading client testimonials from previous Milestone landscape design projects, Derek and Happiness contacted me for their Murjan Villas landscape project through the Milestone website.


We decided to meet in person at their villa to view the site, understand their requirements and learn their aspirations.



I invited them to our show villa in Jumeirah Park for an initial consultation.

During our meeting they were able to see firsthand many of our design elements, check our quality of execution as well as provide me with an overview of their backyard design needs.

The Project

Derek wanted to transform his backyard plot into a space he could enjoy with his wife and son, throw intimate dinner parties, and throw large parties to entertain family, friends, and colleagues.


He envisioned a dedicated play area for his children, as well as an outdoor kitchen and dining area.



As you enter the backyard from the main villa, you’re instantly greeted by a gorgeous arrangement of potted plants.


The inviting custom designed wooden swing features custom planters filled with lush potted plants perfect for reading with the children or relaxing on a warm afternoon.



As guests pass through the spacious outdoor kitchen, they instantly notice the outdoor barbecue grill, single burners, kitchen sink, storage cabinets, spacious granite countertops, and natural stone cladding.


It’s the perfect area to make the outdoor cooking experience convenient and fun!



In between the outdoor kitchen and the seating area, Derek can enjoy dining al fresco with his family and friends on his custom-built wooden table with granite top.


The custom built wood bench adds a pop of vibrant color to the dining area, while the gorgeous granite table top is durable and built to withstand the natural heat and sun.



As they dine, guests will enjoy the soothing sounds of the nearby relaxing water wall and stunning sight of their fire pit and custom built decorative wooden wall surrounded by lush greenery and LED candles.



Complete with a retractable awning, this entire outdoor kitchen and dining area create a very distinct space.



Once guests pass through the kitchen, they enter the warm and inviting outdoor living area.


We built the pergola as an extension of the main villa, with spacious ‘L’ shaped couch and chairs to provide ample of seating for family and friends. All outdoor furniture was customized and built in our joinery.



As guests relax under the shade of the pergola, they can watch their children play on the nearby swing set and rock climbing wall in the nearby play area. An additional seating area off to the side of the backyard with sunshade provides extra space for guests to relax and unwind.



The Result

Derek was very pleased with the final out come of his Murjan Villa landscape project. He found the Milestone team to be very accommodating and competent. We are very happy to have exceeded his design expectations.


Today, Derek is enjoying his newly renovated backyard with his family. We’ve created the perfect outdoor space to sit down and relax with family, to throw intimate dinner parties, or to host larger gatherings with family and friends.

Client: Kalpana Danthi and Deepak Danthi


Location: Villa in Jumeirah, Palm Jumeirah


Project Type: Palm Jumeirah Landscape Design, Garden Landscaping, Pergola Upgrade





I had the pleasure of meeting Kalpana Danthi back in 2010, when she was referred to Milestone through a dear friend.


During that time we transformed their backyard landscape and it turned out to be a lovely garden space.


Kalpana’s garden villa in Palm Jumeirah contains a small outdoor landscape area.


She wanted to create a backyard retreat where she could entertain her family and friends with ease.





She desired a beautiful entrance with sounds of relaxing water and the sights of lush greenery.


To make the most of her space, she envisioned a covered pergola to create a comfortable outdoor living space where she could relax and entertain guests with easy access to a nearby outdoor bar.



The Project


A fashionista, socialite, and influencer, Kalpana Danthi had a distinct vision for her home. She actively participated throughout the entire design process, providing a complete design brief articulating all of her requirements.


Together we infused her personal tastes and passion for design into a detail oriented space that exceeded all of her expectations.  




Most recently in 2018 , Kalpana enlisted my Palm Jumeirah landscaping services to enhance her garden villa.


This pergola was built in 2011, and she was very eager to upgrade her pergola and seating and upgrade the outdoor bar area for entertaining.

this is the villas refurb we did many years ago, so it shows a before and after.






The pergola measures approximately 7 meters by 5 meters, and provides a spacious 35m2 area for seating and visiting with friends.


During this recent landscape project, we upgraded  her bar area just off of the pergola, so it would match with the new look of the pergola.


As her guests enter and walk down the pathway to the pergola, they are greeted by a relaxing water feature surrounded by lush green plants.

The design theme is quite modern and neutral, with soft hues coming out through the colors of the cushions.





We selected a wine color theme to pop against the greenery and outdoor landscape.


Additionally we upgraded all of the outdoor furniture, painted the pergola, added new cushions, and created a stunning backdrop wall to bring the space together.





The Result


To make the most of her space, we also added a bit of sitting and dining on the left side of her villa.





Between the spacious living area under the pergola, the convenient outdoor bar, and the additional seating to the side of the villa, Kaplana is able to easily entertain parties of 100 people in her backyard.





Best of all, the design layout of the backyard is ideal for both large parties and smaller, intimate gatherings.


Stunning and elegant by day, the entertaining can continue long after dusk. Custom lighting features create an elegant space to entertain long after the sun sets.





Kalpana is very pleased with her new backyard entertaining area and looks forward to hosting many event in the near future.

Client: Naresh Mohnani


Location: Lantana Villas, Dubai


Project Type: Lantana Villas Landscape Design, Complete Garden paving, Outdoor Kitchen, Pergola, Water Feature, Seating, Lighting and Planting with Artificial Turf.


Duration: Landscape design took approximately 4 months to complete (including design, detailing, and gaining approvals from DCCA for a pergola, building and completion certificate)




I have had the pleasure of knowing Naresh Mohnani for many years. Both avid Table Tennis players, our paths would often cross at the India club. As we became more acquainted, he knew that I specialized in landscaping and interior design.


Over time, he was often referred to my work. You can imagine how thrilled I was when he purchased his villa and contacted me to work on his Lantana Villa’s landscape garden design.



I immediately invited Naresh to the Milestone show villa, which is in Jumeirah park, to have a look at all of the possibilities and options for his personal garden design.


The Project

Naresh was very open to suggestions and allowed me to lead the project. I took the time to speak with Naresh and his family, and together we began to formulate what they wanted from their backyard landscape design.


They wanted to create a functional space that would enhance their lifestyle while maximize every square foot of their backyard space.



They wanted to build a sitting area with shade structure, barbeque, and a bar to enjoy the seasonal weather with cooking and dining.


They also wanted to enhance the landscape design with herb garden, water feature, and decor feature walls to host parties and intimate gatherings for friends, family, and extended family.



The Milestone design team and I were tasked with creating a design to make their backyard look spacious, beautiful and inviting, while simultaneously incorporating all of their design elements.


I sketched out some design ideas on Naresh’s floor plans and they were all very impressed and excited to start! The garden had to be simple, low in maintenance and accommodate easy flow of people in parties.


The Result

The entrance is warm and inviting. As you walk through the pathway on the right side of the villa, you are greeted by an impressive combination of lush green and flowering plants. As you near the end of the entrance way, you’ll notice a decorative stone wall featuring an intriguing sculpture that adds to the ambiance of this stunning outdoor space.




The artificial turf area is enhanced with a relaxing water feature and a comfortable bench for additional seating. We designed and created a stunning covered pergola with  rich Miranti wood finish to serve as the ideal sitting for outdoor dining and a sitting lounge.



Adjacent to the pergola, we added a spacious bar counter for additional seating with a gorgeous granite countertop and stone facia cladding. The outdoor barbeque area is complete with storage cabinets and a functional sink.



We even encorporated a herb garden to spice up Naresh’s outdoor meals.



It was equally important for Naresh and his family to be able to entertain in their backyard during the day as it was to entertain in the evening.



Through the combination of concealed LED lights and other custom lighting fixtures, we were able to create an outdoor space to enjoy day in and day out.



The final touch? A custom sound system to take the fun to next level for special events!



Naresh’s new backyard landscape design makes it easy for him to host intimate dinners and to cater large parties and events.



It was a pleasure to work with Naresh and his family to build a landscape for their villa to make memories with family and friends for years to come.
