A warm wood retaining wall features the home's address number that complements the exterior. Lovely green shrubs and plants fill the landscape, and a gravel walkway leads the way to the front entrance.
Landscape architect Jason Brownlee designed this outside oasis to mirror the circular design of the Mediterranean-style villa but added modern touches to accentuate the view. This ebb and flow design features a reflective, infinity-edge pool in black onyx with terraced water features that allow overflow to be caught in spa basins below. The perimeter overflow system allows the pool to level flush against the travertine floor of the upper patio and helps to frame the view for a continuous water-to-water illusion from pool to lake.
The lakeside setting of this Colorado garden provides a stunning backdrop for visitors to enjoy. The use of native plants throughout the garden creates a seamless integration to the landscape beyond the property.
A stone retaining wall and trees speckled across the landscape create a sense of privacy at this lakeside home. The same stone used for the retaining wall blends into the exterior steps, siding and chimney.
The strong architectural forms of this lakeside modern are the backdrop for several new outdoor spaces, such as a Zen garden, swimming pool, and entry courtyard that all compliment the house by using like materials and extending the forms into the landscape.
