What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Show Off the Shape of Spheres
This group of spheres creates a beautiful and interesting focal point at the end of the pool. I love the way this vista continues from indoors to outdoors (bravo to the designer and the photographer).
Debra Prinzing added this to Reflecting Pools as Liquid Assets
This lovely pool gains importance thanks to the dramatic scene at its far edge. A solid wall of hedging defines the perimeter and acts as a backdrop for the sculptural display of orbs and spheres. And everything in this setting doubles in importance when reflected in the surface of the pool.
A Doorway to MinimalismThe introduction of the "rooms outside" style of garden design in the 1960s led us to view smaller gardens in a different way. Rather than a separate part of the property, the garden became an extension of the house.The introduction of patio doors with large areas of glass, and later, bifold doors that peel back to remove any barrier between the interior and exterior, has forged the way for the creation of the minimal garden.By using the same flooring material inside and out a smooth transition is created between the spaces.
Debra Prinzing added this to Give Your Garden an Arresting Point of View
Draw the eye. Everything is perfecty aligned on the axis that connects this open doorway with the perimeter hedge. You can see where the notion of a framed view works hand in hand with the idea of a focal point. That's because the grouping of terra cotta–colored spheres is nicely framed by every other element of this installation. First there are open glass doors, which link interior and exterior spaces. Next there's a stone patio, which draws the eye further, across the low hedging, over the water's surface and between two accent walls that create a gallery-like niche for the orbs. This technique works well in narrow spaces, adding perspective and creating a pleasing sense of proportion.

The monochromatic dark green plantings with varying textures. The combination of rectangular shapes. The simple water feature. The opening in the high walls. I think that it could have done without the spherical stone balls for the focal point. It makes it a bit too busy for my liking.
