What Houzz contributors are saying:

He introduced native plants in bold block plantings. He became a passionate botanist, working with others on expeditions into the Brazilian hinterland, where new species were found and introduced. He created one of the world’s most important collections of tropical plants in his own garden at Sítio.Here we see the pool at Sítio Roberto Burle Marx, the nearly 100-acre estate where Burle Marx lived and practiced. His gardens are based on the organic shapes he loved, and though not classically formal, they have a formality that required every plant to be set in its place to achieve the result he wanted.

This is so serene. It would entail planting a little grass in the side yard.
