The Impossible Dream
Things I will never be able to afford.
"A long, boardwalklike entry flanked by water sets a tropical mood as you enter the home. You don't even need to do a lot of landscaping; water plants and the hardscape and architecture do the trick."
"If your space is limited, try to squeeze in pond, surrounded of course by plenty of greenery and with a lily pad or two floating inside (koi are a bonus). A patio space overlooking the water is a lovely addition."
"This massive sliding door lets the patio and the interior become one space when opened."
"This photo approaches the ideal that many people would aspire for in green roofs: beautiful native grasses and wildflowers (with solar panels, to boot). This is an example of an extensive system (5 inches soil depth), and it is actually a laboratory for Stanley Studio, whose offices it sits atop. It requires more structural support than an intensive system, and more considerations in terms of plant selection than just sedum, but the result is stunning."
