Ever wonder if your neighborhood filled with single family homes was a single 40 story skyscraper instead? I counted about 450 total lots in my immediate neighborhood (the small circles) and compared them to the footprint of a 673 unit, 40 story building in downtown San Diego (The Square Shape).
We are currently working on a mid century modern home landscape. The challenge has been to find a way to take an existing free-form pool and make it meld with the clean lines of a modern landscape.
In an effort to live by our word, we are working with a new client to re-use all of the material from our fair exhibit. This is a new layout that will replace an unused portion of our client's backyard.
We designed and built this garden at the 2011 San Diego Flower and Garden Show. The exhibit showcased sustainable materials and water management techniques. We used 100% California Native Plants, cobble native to San Diego, mulch from recycled wood clippings, and raw steel to make gabion baskets. The exhibit received eight awards. If you are interested in this look, portions of the exhibit are for sale.
