This client wanted to transform the parking lot at her villa into a contemporary low maintenance garden, including an outdoor setting area to display her style and create an attractive, multi-functional space which appeals to all the family. To improve the functionality of her front yard, artificial grass was fixed to cover the interlock area. We built planters in different levels to bring greenery. We include a swing and sand box for her kids to play besides a seating area to enhance the user experience.
Worth mentioning in this project the lighting that adds another exciting dimension to the garden, making it not only usable on winter evenings, but also visually accessible in the summer months. With practical lighting to structural planting, inset lighting to seating and paving and up-lighting to the water feature, the effects can be dramatic. However, with the use of different circuits, a more subtle feel can be achieved, according to the mood and occasion.
On selecting the plants, a strong focus on shape and textures, grasses and other low maintenance plants that help enhance the sense of place was achieved. The current setup works as an extension of their home while continuing the contemporary feeling of the interior.
