Garden Design

Beverly Hills Pool House

A grass carpet frames the modern architecture of the new pool house with its almost panorama-like view and the swimming pool. Aloe plants, Fountain Grass and Mexican Feather Grass catch the eye even as they endure dry spells without any need for special care.

Cielo e Mare

Three areas distinguish this effective garden. Succulents survive well in the salty air of the Pacific Coast, while flowering bougainvillea, aloes, sedum (stonecrops), arctotis (African Daisies), and rosemary create a Mediterranean flair at the center. All the way above, palms and New Zealand metrosidero trees offer protection from the sun as well as privacy.
