After moving into their newly built home, the couple wanted to create a compelling reason to use their yard. Set in-town on an urban street, the back area was a tabula rasa with little natural context to draw from. Since they like trees and nature, the owners asked for a private oasis that would encourage birds, butterflies & pollinators. The clients also hoped for a better connection between the inside and outside, to draw people out every season.
The space would be flexibile…suitable for quiet every day living as well as scalable for various types of entertaining. It also needed to serve as a respite for a busy artist who gardens and draws inspiration from nature. Design elements include:
• Lily pool & fountain
• Hedged gravel garden
• Flowers, fragrance & seasonal changes
• Mixed shrubs & evergreen textures
• Property screening for privacy
• Outdoor lighting
