Inspiration for this project started with 2 pieces of sculpture that the client previously acquired. The hybrid contemporary/old-world feeling of this garden boasts an 800 sq. ft. porcelain tile patio, firepit, multiple steel plate terraced retaining walls and extensive plantings. There is irrigation and low voltage lighting throughout, with a meandering composite decking boardwalk and stair system to access the patio from the upper deck. Built-in, compact, basalt columns flank the firepit while the hardy Schefflera’s, Fairy Bells, specimen Conifers and Japanese Maples, along with other signature, collection grade plants soften up the graduated, cedar fences that descend down either side of the property to frame this tranquil, outdoor space.
