Arroyo Outdoor is a unique and timeless line of outdoor and garden products that enable the creation of integrated, complimentary or contrasting designs in the garden and exterior environment. The lines include natural stone and cast architectural products, swimming pool and spa materials, handcrafted tiles, garden pots and fountains, outdoor furniture and lighting.

Founded in 2007, Arroyo Outdoor has a heritage based on the talents, skills and experience of Carolyn Watson and Joe Torres. In her work for her own clients through Watson Design Group founded in 1978, Carolyn has been commissioned to develop numerous pieces of custom furniture. Schooled in the fine arts and accustomed to working on an international level, Carolyn & Joe work closely with Arroyo Outdoor’s fine artisans to blend, create and fabricate all product lines with an attention to detail and refined aesthetic sensibility. Her expertise in furniture design began as assistant to furniture designer Paul Tuttle, with additional responsibility for making his prototypes. Carolyn also taught product design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and contributed to the design planning for the Art Center campus in Switzerland.

Joe Torres is an award winning landscape and construction professional with over 20 years of experience. Joe also leads the team of Watson Design Group artisans, craftsmen and fine masons. His knowledge and innovative use of stone, metal and other landscape materials contribute to the fine quality of the Arroyo Outdoor hardscape elements and products.
