Fire Pits create a great gathering space for a larger group of people, by distributing heat in all directions your guests can gather together around and enjoy radiant heat.

A Years’ Review

In 2015 Arroyo Seco Construction had the pleasure of working with amazing clients and on exciting projects that kept us immersed in the work we are passionate about.

Construction, Renovations, Remodels, Landscaping, Hardscaping, Metal Work and Masonry rounded out a year of rewarding projects. 

Renovations/Remodel

Store front and interior renovation with construction of new balcony and wheelchair access ramp. Home remodel with full interior and exterior gutting and refurbishing.  

Hardscape/landscape

New Pools, Fountains and fitness areas were developed along with brand new landscapes and garden features. Landscapes were designed recognition of our climate conditions reaching our low water goals, while achieving the sensation of lush and texturally interesting plantings. 

Metal Work / Masonry

Our master masons and metal workers produced magnificent works of art, fulfilling both their needed form and function while creating exquisite focal pieces. 

We at Arroyo Seco Construction wish everyone an exceptional holiday and fantastic new year!

Working with Subcontractors

Arroyo Seco Construction has developed long standing relationships with several trusted and reliable subcontractors over the years. While we employ several skilled laborers capable of handling a wide range of jobs, there will be some circumstances in which teaming up with other contractors is most beneficial to our clients and to quality of workmanship. By coordinating with subcontractors for specific jobs Arroyo Seco Construction can ensure that the proper equipment safety, and skilled craftsman are working on site to give our clients the best results
