In this teeny space, we wanted to create a tidy, low-maintenance landscape with clean, modern lines to complement the style of the house & the preferred aesthetic of the clients. The centerpiece is a split level patio which appealed to our clients’ as the most practical way to get outside and use as an extension of their indoor living space.

Each transition of materials (grass to gravel, patio to pavers to gravel garden and path) is paired with a slight change in height, and naturally leads you through the garden while creating a sense of separate spaces and a level of visual complexity.

All plantings are contained in either steel-edged and slightly upraised peripheral planter space, gravel space, or custom steel and concrete planters. The large massings of grasses & bamboo soften the edges, create variations in height, as well as provide movement and quick screening. Other plantings include planted concrete succulent bowls, an herb garden in an upraised steel container, seasonal interest of perennial surprises and anchors of an Olive tree and a Chinese Pistache for fall color.
