What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Making an Entrance Grand
The front path leads you through a minimal geometric courtyard, and the materials have a strong relationship to the house.
The pedestrian pathway lets one approach a dramatic entry court with views that pass right through the house. The entryway was designed not only for drama and a special journey, but also as a space sheltered from the Pacific winds. It provides a warmer microclimate for gathering outdoors on windy nights. Here comes another cute pooch to greet visitors.
Becky Harris added this to Ornamental Grasses in the Landscape
Here Mexican feather grass was chosen for its architectural simplicity and easy maintenance.
Becky Harris added this to Higher Ground: 6 Spectacular Landscapes
This home sits atop a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Aptos, California. A beautifully planned entry court provides a peek at the ocean through the front door.
Genevieve Schmidt added this to Breeze Into Coastal Landscapes
While many coastal gardens are designed to reflect the natural lines of the surrounding landscape, this is a gorgeous example of a contemporary approach. The olive trees have a cloudlike appearance that softens the architecture, and the motion of the grasses as they sway in the wind brings a lively feeling to the home.See more of this coastal garden
Secret Gardens of Sydney added this to How to Design a Coast-Loving Garden That Lasts
Olive trees frame the entrance to this house. They are a hardy tree able to manage most conditions, and the glaucous and gray tones add contrast to other plants.
