The concept for this design was to connect the indoors with the outdoors. The terraced outdoor space includes two fire pits, geometric planters that add natural color, a bocce ball court and a sports court for playing tennis or basketball. A rooftop garden offers additional seating and an incredible ocean view.
Hard-lined geometric planters are softened with softly textured native grasses and vibrant succulent varieties that either drape over planter walls or act as sculptural pieces, which complement the architecture. The walls throughout the site not only aid in creating more usable space, but absorb the sun’s heat during the day and radiate it out in the cooler coastal evenings.
Along the side of this home, a narrow outdoor space is turned into a haven of meditative calm. Geometric pavers are surrounded by pale stones and rambling vines, and a bench finds a peaceful home between two large planters with succulents.
The roof is extended off the doors to the pool area to create shaded patios around the pool. A pair of lounge chairs with bright blue cushions bring a pop of color to the space and have the perfect view for relaxing outdoors. Pavers are used to create a geometric surround around the pool, while grass in between softens the hardscaping.
This sizable backyard allows for plenty of entertaining space around the geometric pool with raised spa. The pool features a large wet deck, an elevated fountain and planter area, as well as a raised deck.
A symmetrical, geometric arrangement of built-in and freestanding planters adds interest to the exterior of this contemporary California home. Green grass between concrete pavers softens the walkway, and tall plants create a layered, interesting look for the garden design. Stacked stone on the home's facade blends with the colors of the sandy beach beyond.
A tile wall runs the length of this crystal-blue swimming pool adding color and including multiple fountains and planters. A built-in hot tub sits to the side of the pool next to a beautifully landscaped patio space with grass growing in a geometric design. A thriving area of flowers, palm trees and ornamental grasses lines the pool with bountiful color.
