This project was a transformation of a barren garden on new construction. It was a tricky hillside site that needed careful thought to hold the hillside and create a beautiful garden. The deck needed carefull design and permitting was required. The results are stunning.
This house has an incredible view over Lake Hollywood. The landscape on the view side was kept simple. The entry garden was made into an intimate gathering space. An inviting path connects the two areas.
For a clean and modern look to complement this mid-century home, I designed beautiful concrete rectangles with Mexican pebbles between and a completely new planting of exotic,water-wise trees, shrubs and perennials.
To make a beautiful and useable front yard a new paver driveway was built. Then we added all new drought tolerant plantings, including raised vegetable beds to take advantage of the south facing light. There are Olive trees growing for shade.
For this complete landscape remodel of an old estate I designed a waterfall and lush colorful plantings around a large audience area for wedding ceremonies. We were able to accomplish this complete makeover while maintaining the existing atmosphere of this beautiful old property.
