This gravel pathway winds through the serenely landscaped, terraced gardens that cover this home's property, connecting the upper spaces with the lower patio and entertaining space. Guests can stop at any point on this path and enjoy the beauty of the butterfly garden all the shrubs and bushes and stone, this garden feels as if it were found, naturally occurring rather than created by a skilled team of designers.
The goal of this design was to turn a previously unused portion of the homeowners' acreage into a retreat that would reflect who they are with the use of industrial and raw materials that reflect the natural landscape.
There are seven new fenced-in horse paddocks that cover most of the home's acreage. These new spaces allow for several riders and their horses to graze, train or simply enjoy a day of casual riding without disturbing one another.
No matter where you garden—on a small acreage, an urban rooftop, or a suburban backyard—you can grow pumpkins in pots. These autumn icons actually thrive in containers, provided you start with a large enough container and the right soil blend.
Remodeled for a client who downsized from a large piece of property to a zero lot concept. Here in SoCal we are having a water shortage so many of my clients are moving away from the houses with acreage and buying tiny beach homes to have a pared down simple lifestyle.
