Beds of drought tolerant shrubs and ornamental grasses, sand finished concrete pavers, statuary, a raised deck for lounging and other features bring a zen garden feel to this private pool and patio area.
Statues of three woman become makeshift water carriers, as water pours from the stone urns they hold into the swimming pool and spa below them. Two fire pits are on either side of the hot tub, while the pool itself has an adjacent poolside patio.
When this patio garden was conceived, the landscape architect was remembering a year in Provence. The French country garden boasts concrete pavers, a trellis covered in cup-and-saucer vines, purple leaf plum trees and flowering ground cover.
Gardens, walkways and grounds have been transformed to illuminate their natural beauty. Contained on the property are a croquet lawn, ornamental fountains and statuary, a large reflecting pool abundant with tropical palms and koi and a pool.
The placement of this dry cast sandstone statuary is prominent on steps and near vibrant containers. The Native American "Nakoma" sculptural figure was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and reproduced by Nichols Bros.
A poolside daybed becomes an enchanting evening retreat with fire and lighting accents. In the foreground, a flagstone wet deck hosts a single flat top boulder protruding from the water providing an excellent space for statuary or a tabletop for beverages.
Two long pools step down to a larger main pool in this beautifully manicured back lawn. Pink-stuccoed pavilions complement the Mediterranean architecture of the main house, which was built in 1927 and designed by famed architect Gordon Kaufmann. Outdoor statuary and crisp, immaculate gardens form the backdrop to a luxury oasis.
When adding sculpture to a garden, some homeowners and landscape designers select a pair of sculptures to make an impact. The Native American "Nakomis" cast sandstone statuary, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and reproduced by Nichols Bros., is facing its partner, "Nakoma," on the stairs of a Georgia home.
The pink stucco gates, carvings, statuary and lush foliage give a hint at what's inside the walls of this stunning Beverly Hills property.
