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.

Here is a collection of beautiful water features and pools we have designed and built in our clients homes.



I was born in Mumbai in the month of June when it was raining profusely. I lived for 30 years on the Marine Drive Sea face and heard the sound of the waves flowing and crashing on the large tetrapots.


I went to sleep and arose to the sound and sight of the mighty Arabian Sea right outside my window. Water was an inherent part of my life.



Since 2007 we’ve been building concrete pools of any shape, size and style which bring nature into the homes of our clients and creates a serene environment.


Water features and pools require special skills to design and execute them properly. Proportion, size, mechanical and electrical calculations, even the sound of the thud of water and its flow is essential to know how the water will behave once the pool is finished.


Milestone excels at this. I am so proud to share with you some of our best Aquascape designs that we have delivered in the last few years.



This unique design of water flowing on glass makes a subtle sound as the glass is just 30 centimeters above the water and sound is controlled.


The water curtain gives the illusion of rain combined with the sound of raindrops. The lighting showcases the glass panel with koi fish with water plants and the 1 meter depth pond is very modern.


The entire bio filtering, oxygenating koi pond system is concealed in the pump room and was built to conceal this equipment. This water feature sits in the entrance and is a very nice Vastu and Feng Shui element to enhance the flow of energy into the house.



Check out some of out best pools – Skimmer, overflow and infinity pools that we have built. Combined with fire, water flowing into the pool, flanked decks, Jacuzzi, each pool is a different experience.


Water walls, water flowing into a pond like water basin, immaculate lighting, the choice of the right material, height and depth of the water flow makes them unique.



A water feature adds a wow factor to the garden. They can be fully automated with an inlet of water, a drain point connected to manholes, vacuum points, filters and a chlorinator to keep them clean just like a pool.


You can completely avoid the headache of self-cleaning and have a water features that doesn’t require you to maintain it.  Lastly, as this is a water rotating system, you don’t need to keep changing the water, just like a pool!

Villa Lantana is a freehold villa development within Dubiotech, close to Barsha 3. These villas were launched in 2014 by Tecom Investments, also the master-developer of Dubiotech. Villa handovers commenced from late 2016 through 2017.



We were contacted to propose a design for a villa landscape. The plot is not too large and architecture very simple, linear and modern. Our intention was to keep the design simple, linear, clutter free and create as much space for ease of movement.


Check out the before and after transformation of this space:







The pergola is waterproof with a slanted slat sunroof covered by polycarbonate sheet. The space below has an in-built concrete seating with cushions:



The paving tiled deck complements the color of the wooden facade. Each window has a picturesque look from the inside out and the Buddha sourced by Milestone has a backing of our signature lantern wall – an amazing feature at night!



Artificial grass keeps water and irrigation costs to a minimum and creates enough space to entertain guests.

Casa, a Moroccan-styled community with exceptionally designed homes, is a fairly new community in Arabian Ranches 2 adding to the luxury lifestyle choices offered by Emaar. Drawing inspiration from the ever-changing desert landscape, the exteriors of Casa reflect the colors of soft sand and the warm hues of dusk.


We were called by the owner in 2016 to complement the villa architecture, keep it simple, modern, easy to maintain and build a nice swimming pool for his family. They owner wanted to have a pergola and barbeque area to entertain guests with a nice outdoor dining and living experience.


We presented the plan with just this brief:



The pool is an overflow pool, aligned parallel to the villa on the left and on the right it follows the slanted boundary wall for maximum space utilization. The pool is flanked by decks on either side to sit and enjoy the serene beauty of water.


Deck is tiled with Ceramic wood looking tiles that are easy to maintain and clean. It is so nice to sit and chat with friends, sipping tea, overlooking the children swimming in the pool.


The stone clad wall nicely conceals the pool pump room and equipments and gives privacy to the pool shower. The pool safety fence allow the pool to be segregated and makes it baby safe for young children.



The grass has been kept artificial to keep the water bills down and ease the maintenance and headache of mowing regularly.



A waterproof pergola is a nice feature for an entertainment area. Check out the beautiful outdoor kitchen with barbeque grill and sink. Conveniently placed near the kitchen and closer to pergola, it gives easy access to their outdoor dining experience.



The design thoughtfully takes care of their lifestyle needs.

This beautiful villa in Emirates Hills is located in Lilak street and boasts of a gorgeous Landscape.




Owners wanted to revamp the whole garden when they bought this property. This villa was U shaped and had a huge central courtyard in the backyard that surrounded different areas in the property. The old pool in that courtyard was not situated in the right location as per Vastu / Feng Shui.
It needed to be closed down with a new pool to be built, right outside the living room. The client wanted some seating area, dining area with a wash basin and a beautiful courtyard with immaculate lighting.They had collected some very old antique columns that needed to be used to build a shade structure.





The layout of the villa did not have square or rectangle areas and everything was spread out due to the u shaped building construction. Areas were divided into left, right and centre, making it hard to integrate spaces! We needed to see a nice view from each window and room and bring spaces together harmoniously.
The toughest part of design was to use the antique columns to create a pergola that does not look too ornate! Was it possible to combine something so antique with modern and match the overall simple and modern design, i wandered!

Idea was to create a beautiful infinity pool that runs water over the walls facing the living room windows. When they open up the bifold doors in winter, the sound of water makes the whole space so relaxing!
We wanted to build a kinesthetic garden that wows all the senses! Long lasting, easy to maintain, sustainable, medium range materials used and yet very serene and impactful with gorgeous lighting design.






It took almost 7 months from designing it, gaining Emaar and Dubai Municipality approvals to building it and handing over.






The entrance has a gorgeous water wall with water sliding down a large glass into a koi pond. Koi Pond basin was a meter deep with glass in the front from which you can see koi fish swimming around . It feels as if it is raining outside when you see the water feature from inside the house.
The gorgeous lantern wall create a nice entrance to the side pathway of the villa. The Infinity Pool with a water feature creates a grand view and is the most gorgeous feature in that villa.






Clients are enjoying spending time in the unique pergola that stand tall near the Pool. They love to entertain, have parties, swim, dine outside as a family. They are able to accommodate at least 100 guests when they desire to host large numbers of people.






Enjoy looking at all the pictures. Should you feel inspired to create something unique in your villa , give us a call and we will help you transform your space and bring your vision into reality.

Masgouf is an Iraqi cuisine restaurant located on Jumeirah Beach Road. It’s one of the finest regional food restaurants, very popular and highly rated.






Milestone was hired to design complete exteriors which is a huge space accommodating at east 150 seats in 2014. Space needed to be created to enjoy the outdoor dining experience, sitting in a beautiful garden. During winter, people love to sit out and dine instead of sitting inside. So it needed to be very special.




We created large shade structures. The span of the beam was 9 meters in length and had to use strong I beams of that length with welding the framework with the column to create a strong support. This was done to avoid columns interfering in the center walking flow. 2 large pergolas are iconic and look lovely from outside and allow enough lighting and fans.




Beautiful water features are built to kill the traffic sound and have a beautiful ambience.


The large black water wall opposite the VIP dining area is my personal favorite and it’s a beautiful water wall. Sliding water makes a soothing sound and there is a always a request and queue to sit in front of it!




Immaculate mood lighting makes the restaurant look gorgeous at night. Well-lit staircases and ramp give a stunning feel at night.


This modern and simple restaurant is completely neutral and used just beige, brown , black and green through plants. Sometimes less is more and simplicity is the key to minimalistic linear designs.




Do visit the restaurant and let us know how you liked it. Should you own a restaurant that needs to be designed inside out, call us and we will help you create an environment that is sought after by people. A well designed entrance and exterior definitely tempts people to try it out!

It’s always so nice to be a part of a whole Interior transformation. I thank Smita for this great opportunity and would love to share with you the journey.


Smita has a lovely Hattan villa located in Meadows, Dubai. She was tired of the old look and the villa layout that was very departmental and disjointed. She wanted to utilize the space better, connect spaces and revamp the whole ground floor.


Smita wanted a nice German fitted kitchen, classy powder room, welcoming living room and dining room.
She wanted a functional, usable, funky bar. From a great and inviting entrance to replacement of her main door, she wanted a very modern and contemporary place for the next 10 years.





Hattan Villas have small partitioned sliding doors and 3 different rooms with a passage and that makes it very difficult to connect spaces. We brought the main door forward, using the front wasted porch space and fixed a glass roof on top.
Leather parquet was used on the marble in the central living room. Walls were partially broken, windows made larger by letting the non loadbearing columns go and the house was completely remodeled.





Ceilings and walls were enhanced with wallpaper and the house was completely white with just a dash of color on one wall and color brought out through cushions and paintings on the wall. Wood works are all done in our in house carpentry and customized.




The old kitchen was completely ripped apart and new flooring tiles, MEP works done to install a German fitted kitchen that she just loves!
Powder room was upgraded with a new vanity counter and the wash basin wall enhanced.




Bar is the most happening place in her house and her son loves to host his friends and all of them love to party there. It’s very convenient as all glasses are placed in drawers and you don’t need to bend much to bring things out.
Wine cooler and fridge are in the same space too.




Smita is so happy with her space. Its been 5 years since we designed this and it still looks new, charming and in vogue as it is a timeless design.
She is enjoying the simplicity in design and yet the glamour in her space. It’s white and yet vibrant. It’s functional and practical and a space that she is proud of. It reflects her personality and makes it a home!
