To ensure that the owners make the most of the Caribbean climate, the landscape architects outfitted the backyard with plenty of seating options. Tropical plants and a large pool further the sense of a private paradise.
This outdoor terrace at Perch LA — a French bistro in the heart of Los Angeles — features yellow and teal Mediterranean floor tiles. Cream colored stone archways are lined with green brick tiles, while several potted tropical plants complete the look of the space.
The spa-like master bathroom features mahogany-trimmed doors that open to a quiet courtyard area. Palm trees and other foliage plants are integrated into the pebbled landscape, while a privacy fence encloses the space.
Concrete stepping stones lead to the home's main entrance and allow visitors to take in views of coconut palms and other plants. Meanwhile, a low retaining wall shows off sleek address numbers, which further complement the modern exterior.
Drought-tolerant aloe plants in antique pots and palm trees bring a canopy of greenery to the dark door of a south Florida home. Ground cover orchids also will bring seasonal color to the entryway. The project by Nievera Williams Design was an American Society of Landscape Architects award winner.
This Malibu backyard features a concrete patio area that overlooks the spacious pool and lounge area. Two outdoor chairs with neutral cushions provide a comfortable place to relax, while tropical potted plants add a touch of greenery. A stainless steel railing encompasses the space.
