Tropical water front garden for this unique home designed by Timothy Moon Architects.
Project Scope: Side gardens, entry garden, driveway, tennis courts, pool surrounds.
This garden space had been landscaped a few years earlier however the owners weren’t satisfied with the result. Prior to our involvement, the garden contained a wonderful specimen of Blue Atlas Cedar that unfortunately had been removed. This left the site looking exceedingly bland and empty. The position of this garden meant it didn’t get a lot of sun, so a predominantly tropical planting palette was provided. Central to this was the owner’s request for some large palms and these partially influenced the plant selection. Zig-zagged sandstone walling was introduced for a few reasons. They assisted in dealing with the existing slope, enabled the creation of a deeper planting zone that would accommodate advanced specimens of Cabbage Tree Palm, and they created a highlight through the levels and textures of foliage within the garden, drawing one’s eye all the way through.
