Rather than moving to the beach, they decided to completely redesign their landscape. In a group effort we created a resort style retreat that takes full advantage of a spectacular view.
We provided the finishing touches to this beautiful renovation of a 1927 historical Spanish Colonial home. From the new front entry, with a vintage gate, seat wall, antique lamps to the full size Olive tree which complemented the architecture and provided appropriate scale. We carried it through the backyard with a comfortable patio, building-in seating, water feature and mediterranaen plantings. At night the landscape lighting makes it almost impossible not to pulled out to enjoy the tranquil space.
This midcentury home is located on the Westslope hills of Portland. My clients interior style of 'Hollywood Regency' was thoughtfully replicated in the landscape surrounding the home. The formal planting scheme and attention to details reinforce that chosen theme. A combination of statuary, garden ornaments, evergreen hedges, flowering shrubs, ground covers, and seasonal color will ensure beautiful site lines throughout the year. An assortment of functional spaces has provided options for entertaining, barbecuing, and or lounging.
A mixture of water-wise botanicals and dramatic textures frame a stunning view.
We completed this Spanish Mission Revival home with a mature Manzanillo Olive, refreshing fountain, and a inviting fireplace. Then surrounded it with a variety of desert loving plant species.
A combination of architectural elements brought this Cape Cod beauty to its full glory. From the cut stone pedestals and traditional white gated entry, to the limestone fountain and globed topiary black iron urn planter. These along with the semi formal plantings created a beautiful setting.
Our focus was to create a tropical paradise that would provide several lush, private Zen-Like spaces. Kentia Palms, Dracaena Draco's, Blue Bamboo, Birds Of Paradise, along with many other varieties thrive together in this garden.
This 1928 Tudor tucked away in the hills above the city of Portland was looking for period type landscape improvements. To complement the architecture we used basketweave brick surfaces throughout, a pair of black iron gates, a raised edible planter, and a basalt stone path. A variety of evergreen hedges, flowering bulbs, and topiaries added the finishing touches.
