What Houzz contributors are saying:

The homeowners loved gray and chose a quartzite stone flooring for indoors and out, connecting the spaces. 'Swan Hill' fruitless olive trees and Mexican feather grass were chosen for their architectural simplicity and easy maintenance.
Becky Harris added this to Show Off the Shape of Spheres
This spherical sculptural already belonged to the owners of this home; after the entry courtyard was completed they found the perfect spot for it.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Crazy for Fruit Trees
The sculptural shapes and grayish leaves of olives are the perfect foil for this contemporary house. While olives can and are grown for their fruit, for most home landscapes you'll probably want to grow the nonfruit type. Even then, they might still produce a stray fruit or two, which will stain surfaces and can easily be tracked into the home. For that reason, place olives in beds that are somewhat removed from main pathways.See the rest of this landscape
