Moden Minimilism, Low Water, Asian Flair

A great project and beautiful plan melding low water practicality with serene aesthetic balance. This garden was created for a stylish couple looking to capitalize off the previously designed interior with modern Asian highlights. We took the opportunity to tie in many of the colors & textures occurring inside to the hard-scape (pavers) and plant materials outside lending the entire unit an established, serene feeling that definitely sets it apart from its surrounding environment.

More than many small gardens, this space highlights abundant evergreen screening, which helps to visually "seal" the colors, textures and natural rhythms of the landscape to the house-structure itself without too much outside scenery (or the neighbors view) creeping in. All in all, a beautiful front & back garden project with an ideal aesthetic-to-practicality ratio. Low water,modern, evergreen - Bravissimo!
