What Houzz contributors are saying:

Samantha Schoech added this to Celebrate Geometry for a Sharp-Looking Design
So much of modern landscape design relies on juxtaposing the randomness of nature against the hard and fast rules of geometry. This is a beautiful example of squares and rectangles against the unpredictable shapes of plants.
