Bold texture and colour. The trees sprouting out of the garden are well placed.
Contours and semi-wild backyard is perfectly complemented by the strong geometry of the water feature. Modernism at it's best in my mind.
I like the tree's placement in the garden and parallel in the lawn. The trees in the lawn create another border along the side of the path. Also one of the contributers made some excellent observations.
circular planting breaks.
hard materials made soft expertly.
Unusual paving steps detail.
Simple water falls and plantings.
Garden sculpture done well.
Stepping on the shoulders of giants.
Obvious from above, subtle from the ground plane.
