Though it's located on one of the best streets in La Jolla, Calif., the back of this home was once overrun with myoporum and acacias that blocked views of the canyon and ocean. To help reclaim the rear garden, the Torrey Pines Landscape Company cleared away the plants and added a modern living and entertaining space beneath the pergola.
Oversized odd-shaped stones make for an eye-catching garden pathway on the grounds of this La Jolla, California, home. The path leads through the stonework archway of a trellis canopied and consumed by an overgrowth of wildflowers and topiary features. The multicolored stonework columns complement the textured walls of the home.
The garden courtyard of this La Jolla home includes a sunken bocce court which provides opportunities for active exercise and engagement with the surrounding topiary features. A colorful stone wall at the court's far end provides players with seclusion while entertaining, without hiding the verdant garden's classically sculpted features.
A reflective swimming pool is bordered by a multicolored stone wall in the garden of this La Jolla, California, home. At its foot, a matching stone fireplace is situated to warm guests as they lounge on oversized wicker sofas. A trellis canopied with classically styled shrubs is a natural barrier offering additional privacy.
Faint accents of red, yellow, and blue stonework add a pop of primary color to the verdant landscape that surrounds a backyard swimming pool hidden behind a trellis brimming with sculpted overgrowth. The heavy stonework, thus lightened, reduces the weightiness of a backyard fireplace which anchors a shaded seating area filled with intricately woven wicker sofas.
Grey wicker dining chairs complement the shaded tree bark which arches over the outdoor dining table to provide natural shade, while the discoloration in the wooden tabletop perfectly complements the multicolored stonework grounds. The stonework also forms the foundation for the barbecue grill and is reflected by accent pillows dressing the chairs.
Oversized cushioned wicker chairs shaded by a muted umbrella, offer comfort before the outdoor fireplace – with inset birdhouse – constructed in multicolored stonework. A complementary walkway borders manicured rows of shrubbery which form a perimeter around beds of wildflowers. Accent pillows on the chairs draw from the color of the surrounding greenery.
The lush but overgrown garden in this La Jolla home has been reshaped with sculpted classical lines while still giving texture and depth alongside the borders of this pathway. The stone path crosses through a trellis wound with vines and a stone pillared archway canopied with lush greenery that both hides and belies the open garden courtyard set in the distance.
A sunken bocce court is separated from the swimming pool in the backyard garden of this La Jolla, California, garden home by a curated blend of topiary, shrubbery, and beds of wildflowers. The once overgrown garden maintains its wild origins while remaining classically styled. In the background multicolored stonework walls are broken up, adding depth, color, and texture to the environment.
