Ornamental grasses varying in color and texture value work in congruence with the white exterior of the home’s updated appearance. The reuse of the wooden front door integrated into an arrangement of low walls and fencing constructed at the front of the property creates an inviting threshold. The design includes a trellis to provide shading for any vehicle occupying the gravel pad. The planting palette utilizes specimen agave, flowering trees, bamboo and native palms. Decorative panels with vines, as wells as a fire feature are used on linear axis points along important view corridors. The new pool and wood decking are accented with a low color wall to define the space and function as additional seating. Vegetation and fencing are used to improve the privacy of the back yard.
