Really thoughtful project, sometimes I wish the "must have lawn" people would understand what the cost of turf really is -not just to the pocket book but to the environment as well.
Are there sources of bluestone in the western states? This is the 8th or 9th project I've seen this year where designers in California or Washington have shipped in Pennsylvania bluestone for clients, shipping prices must be horrendous, and its not really very "green". I'd love to see more projects where all of the stone was locally sourced -my apology for being so nit picky on a beautiful project !

Great ideas for using succulents. They're great for our environment here in Orange County. Here's a vertical succulent wall the homeowners put up on one of our latest projects. They are assorted varieties, but the customers also had pots of jade throughout the yard.

I would love to have a succulent wall planter on the side of my garage, but have some concerns about dampness between the planter and wall that might cause mildew or even deterioration of the wall surface. What is your experience with this??

geejay, If you're craving brighter than 'all the green' I wonder still about bringing a slightly brighter, more striking, version of your colors, but in an area rug, sort of like this [cause there's only pattern at the windows? or maybe a bright bed pillow? ] :

Thank you for this article. Green has been my neutral for years. Imagine living in Rainy Seattle, WA and painting a room beige or, heaven strike me, grey. Perhaps in another region where the sun is intense. Green is the color of balance and nature. It helps us concentrate and even helps us heal. Long live green. Let's all take a lesson from nature and use more green. The world would be a happier place

If you ever have a survey how happy people are in their new homes I would say those in the houseboat must be very happy and content. it is just beautiful and has to be loved by people and a dog. I wonder if they have a real dog how long it takes him to make friends with the one on the roof.......................
