What Houzz contributors are saying:

So we'll set out to explore the expertly-manicured grounds, with the occasional mist of sea spray reaching us from the ocean below.

The location of this garden dictated much of the design right from the start of the project. "The idea behind the design was to really incorporate it into the landscape, reflecting the movement of the sea and to look as if it had alway been there." The ocean view, the rocky cliffs, and the Mediterranean climate were major deciding factors in all creative decisions.

Packing for a trip is certainly a chore, but if done correctly it makes traveling much easier. I have a tendency to overpack — surprise! I’ve brought clothing I never wear and stuff I could not possibly have needed. As an organizer, it’s an area I’ve improved upon and have put together some simple tips on how to pack for a trip here.

Topography refers to the surface shape and features of your property. Is your site sloped, stepped or flat? Are there large boulders or rock croppings? Is there a pond? Many sites have a combination of topographical elements. Choosing where to locate your house in relation to these elements can make a big difference in the construction cost of your home. While locating your house on a rocky slope might create a dramatic setting and take full advantage of sweeping views, the foundation design will be extremely expensive. (Here’s a cost-saving tip: Avoid large retaining walls.)

To landscape the rock projecting into the lagoon, level the coral than put coral rock and have varied sizes and dimensions of the areas. Preserve the surrounding vegetation and put a low cement fence at the periphery. The scattered strategically place stones are a nice touch.
