This driveway and front entry are packed with character and function. A large circle allows for easy movement in and out of the home and compliments the neutral tones of the home exterior. A central water feature and surrounding garden decor heightens the beauty and curb appeal of the entry path.
Two large armchairs are angled toward the center of this great room, carving out a conversation area for two. Ceramic deer busts adorn the wall behind the chairs, adding rustic flair to the transitional space.
Large stones serve as restful art in this modern, zen backyard. A classic rock garden features rows of succulents, while subtle lighting accents the wood garden wall and water feature. A shaded seating area rests nearby.
The stone patio's primary focal points are the experiential elements like the water feature and fire pit. In order the break up the large expanse of hardscape, the designer chose to mimic textural features through the choice of a metal sofa with a decorative element similar to that on the fountain. Small design details like that create continued visual interest in this inviting garden made for entertaining.
Framed by tall green hedges, this formal water feature adds a whimsical detail to the garden. Water flows from a decorative ceramic mask hung from the plastered wall, into a basin filled with aquatic plants like water lillies.
The main focus of the design was the infinity pool. It was positioned so the infinity edge faces the largest view of the lake. The designer created a large, lounging patio for big parties as well as a lower patio for drinks and cigars. The unique water feature with plants breaks up and softens the extensive hardscaping.
A large cube water feature with underlighting makes a striking statement in this outdoor living space. Small trees and shrubs combine with boulders to surround the entire space, creating a more natural environment.
