SHELLY ANN ABBOTT, MLA, A MULTIPLE AWARD-WINNING LANDSCAPE DESIGNER CREATED A NEW VISION WHEN SHE DESIGNED THE LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE FOR THIS JOSIAS JOESLER RESIDENCE IN THE CATALINA FOOTHILLS IN TUCSON AZ. THE NEW DESIGN IS INTENDED TO BE BEAUTIFUL AND SUSTAINABLE AND DISPLAY THE SPANISH ARCHITECTURE AT ITS FINEST. A NEW BRICK WALKWAY AND PATIO DESIGNED IN A CLASSIC LAYOUT FEATURE A NEW SPANISH FOUNTAIN FACED WITH LASCAUX TILE. THE TILE DESIGN IS BASED ON AN ORIGINAL PERSIAN TILE FOUND ON A FOUNTAIN POOL IN BALBOA PARK, CA. IT WAS THE CLIENT’S IDEA TO DESIGN THE SPOUT IN THE IMAGE OF A SAGUARO FLOWER. MATURING PALO VERDE TREES FORM A CONTINUOUS LACY CANOPY UNDER WHICH COLORFUL NATIVE DESERT UNDER-PLANTINGS THRIVE AND GIVE YEAR AROUND COLOR AND INTEREST.
