Modern home on the creek was landscaped to appear as if it had landed within a woodland garden. We used large swaths of a limited plant palette of iris, dwarf sabal palm, variegated carex, and mexican feather grass to give it a soft but contemporary feel. A row of coral bark japanese maples seems to glow along the grey stone background of the facade. Large variegated pittosporum were used to screen the driveway and give depth to the garden. A fun tree swing was added by the client to the large Live Oak in the front yard. It's the perfect spot to enjoy the view.
