This garden has an amazing backdrop of live oaks. It is rare that one gets to design with such an established canopy. We were mindful of low water areas and plants, and used gravel as low impact hardscape for the roots. The garden is a calm and open, created with the use of negative space. The hub of the garden is the central fire feature that we designed. It is close to the back of the house so that one can enjoy the garden when sitting around it in the evening, but it is also a sculptural element by day. The modern shed, dining, and lounge areas make this space multi-functional for rest and relaxation.
