Restrained plantings take their cue from the stunning natural setting. Sweeps of native grasses and succulents dot the garden; olive trees provide structure and shade. Dramatic succulents in pots contrast with the simple background, providing sculptural interest.
This lush suburban backyard includes a hand-laid gray brick paver and terra-cotta brick walkway, ornamental grasses, evergreen foliage and perennials. A wooden privacy fence, gray stone wall and fast growing privacy shrubs surround the garden.
This patio, steps and stairs use Pennsylvania bluestone pavers at the base and steps made of crab orchard stone slabs. The tall walls are made of existing pressure-treated timbers that Atlanta-based King Landscaping incorporated into design. The border around the patio uses Pennsylvania blue stone with a thermal finish.
For additional ambiance, the landscape architects outfitted the garden with an accent wall that doubles as a cool, cascading water feature. Lush green plants all around further the sense of a hidden oasis.
