This lush private garden is located in South Florida between Coconut Grove and downtown Miami. Although it is in an urban environment, its dense, tropical foliage and the calming sounds of trickling fountains create a perfectly serene and secluded sanctuary.
This serene courtyard features circular garden beds, large trees and two wooden benches that provide an ideal resting spot. A large arbor with trellis fencing provides a walkway, linking together the kitchen and dining areas.
A modern grilling space by Word + Carr Design Group, complemented by purple and green foliage, intersects beauty and function. The wood and steel bench holds a smoker while the wood retaining wall adds refinement to the native vegetation of Austin, Texas, earning this structure the ASLA 2018 Award of Excellence in residential design category.
