A contemporary California pool terrace features a custom fire pit, sofas and armchairs. The space is shaded by arbors topped with panels of woven willow. The home is on a 17-acre site in the Sonoma Valley. The project by Roche and Roche Landscape Architecture was an 2017 ASLA award winner.
Located in the historic “Professorville” district of Palo Alto, Calif., this brick bungalow sits on a lot of less than ¼-acres. Subsequently, the Zeterre Landscape Architecture team needed to carve out a garden retreat that complemented the home, preserved its native plants and exuded the Japanese style the owners so desired.
This project was a collaboration between two landscape architects Ladd Roberts of Landwise Design and Craig Reynolds for Craig Reynolds Landscape Architecture both brought their unique points of view to create a custom design that combines the architecture and landscape to make this vacation home a place the owners never want to leave.
Millennials say they want to hang out with friends outdoors and enjoy views. Universities are responding to those needs. The Cal State San Marcos Student Union, for example, features a roof garden and outdoor terrace. The design by landLAB Landscape Architecture received an award from the San Diego American Society of Landscape Architects.
Craig Reynolds Landscape Architecture replaces the interior finish, giving the pool a more natural hue of blue. On a $45,000 budget, they replace the patio, line the pool with stones and break up the ho-hum rectangular shape with a stone walkway, creating an attractive square-shaped pool and two smaller decorative pools.
This vibrant blue and purple garden of perennials and annuals in Newport, Rhode Island, is framed by a classic Italianate pergola and a backdrop of evergreens, earning it an ASLA 2018 Honor Award. Trees in container line the walkway along the pools connected by a channel to a sitting area. The project is designed by Reed Hilderbrand Landscape Architecture.
A square modern fire pit was key amenity when Grounded Modern Landscape Architecture captured as much useable outdoor living space as possible in a coastal California home. The odd-shaped area was challenging but the result shows a creative design for a small space. Grounded won a San Diego chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects award for the project.
This cottage style landscape perfectly compliments the stately architecture with dramatic but tranquil flare. Every nook and corner in the landscape was a perfect opportunity to create a creative landscape vignette.
