Sedona Outdoor Living Masterpiece

A desert backyard gets a pool, ramada, outdoor kitchen, fireplace and more

John Stewart Leslie is a landmark in Sedona, or perhaps all of his projects share landmark status amidst the red rock of this exclusive Arizona community. "I consider myself a designer who happens to be a contractor, not the other way around," says John, owner and designer of the firm JSL Landscape. This gives John a unique ability to design with direct building costs in mind so his projects always come in on budget. This eliminates unexpected expenses in the field which can be devastating to homeowners. Armed with a masters in landscape architecture, his combination of highbrow design training and a long history of in-the-trenches construction, he is a rare creature in today's market. It's no wonder his projects are detailed, smart and up to date with today's most haute interiors and architecture in this finicky southwest enclave.
