Between the newly erected guest house and the main house, this walkway, made of stabilized, decomposed granite, made passage between the two very easy. This unique material combines the durability of concrete with the organic beauty of the desert surroundings, helping the design of this space to blend in to nature. To further the natural look, designers added indigenous plants that would require less watering to preserve the socially conscious lifestyle of the homeowners.
The homeowners wanted an outdoor design that would meet the desires of their indoor-outdoor lifestyle, so designers included multiple seating areas with chaise lounges for taking in the sun, half-submerged loungers for cooling off in the shallow end of the pool, porch swings and an outdoor dining table for enjoying a meal al fresco.
