Subtle block from street without intrusive fence - linda_vogel7285
After a tear-down/remodel we were left with a west facing sloped front yard without much privacy from the street, a blank palette as it were. Re purposed concrete was used to create an entrance way and a seating area. Colorful drought tolerant trees and plants were used strategically to screen out unwanted views, and to frame the beauty of the new landscape. This yard is an example of low water, low maintenance without looking like grandmas cactus garden.

Is it worth it to create a private space in the front yard? - ggmilz
This San Anselmo, CA landscape in Marin county was completely redesigned to replace a large portion of the thirsty lawn. I created curving paths and adjacent areas using decomposed granite (DG) and flagstone. The plantings include CA native plants and other drought tolerant plants chosen to provide year-round color and appeal. Something is always in bloom in this garden!

Phormium 'Black Adder' 3-4' tall, 2-3' wide. - grndiva
Recognizing the natural constraints on a narrow, wooded site with substantial topographic variation, southern exposure, and small private framed views to Cozy Cove, the architect, landscape architect, and owners collaborated to create a design that focused on the preservation of existing vegetation and the relationship of interior and exterior spaces. This partnership formed the framework for the architecture and garden design to respond to one another.
The owner’s goal for their home was to maintain a strong and vital connection to the site, creating a fusion between home and landscape with a modern edge. The landscape design emphasizes structured and formal solutions in and around the building and its social spaces, while the site’s perimeter is soft and natural. The result of these efforts is a strong and clear connection between architecture and garden, integrating a palette of both modern and natural elements.
