This beautiful mid-century modern home with its clean Asian inspired lines was in need of a new landscape that better represented it’s rich architectural history. The client was looking for a low maintenance outdoor space that could be admired from the many windows looking onto the courtyard. We altered the grade to enhance interest, added a stunning Japaneses maple surrounded by lush no-mow ornamental grasses, gravel, stone and other zen like plants. We re-purposed the faulty water feature into a dry stream bed covered in vines while being surrounded by non invasive bamboo. Now this courtyard acts a a calming respite to be enjoyed either from indoors or while seating amongst its quite beauty.
