Outdoor Garden With Small Pond and Concrete Bridge
A narrow concrete bridge provides a path across a small pond. Lined with colorful flowers, ornamental grasses and rocks, a tranquil waterfall trickles down into the pond creating a relaxing garden atmosphere.
A well-manicured lawn allows for unobstructed views of a sitting area in the distance. At the same time, a variety of palm trees, shrubs and ornamental grasses ensure that the garden is rich with vegetation and visual interest.
This lush private garden is located in South Florida between Coconut Grove and downtown Miami. Although it is in an urban environment, its dense, tropical foliage and the calming sounds of trickling fountains create a perfectly serene and secluded sanctuary.
Entering this tranquil garden is like stumbling upon another world, as busy streets give way to towering palm trees and flowering bushes. A paver walkway winds gently through the space, and so sets an easy-going tone that will carry throughout the property.
A long lap pool stretches through this yard and is bordered by a lush mix of tropical trees, shrubs and flowers. The gorgeous garden reflects in the pool's water. At the end of the pool, a relaxing seating area is perfect for enjoying the atmosphere and enjoying the sunshine.
In the spirit of British Colonial style, this property includes a series of "outdoor rooms," or spaces that are defined by walls of palm trees and other native plants. This wood pergola marks the entrance to one such space, with a bench at the end for quiet reflection.
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.
