I'm so excited, so excited!!!
These homes exceeded my expectations!
Fantastic, absolutely fantastic!!
Here are a couple...
|Strong horizontal lines are a grounded backdrop to an arid, naturalistic garden.|
|The garden is lush, open, and beautifully maintained.|
Round pavers set in gravel gently lead you by well-built red sandstone planters full of drought tolerant grasses and conifers.
|A similar home, clearly Japanese inspired home and garden, is both detailed and simple. The deck railing is low and horizontal in keeping with the roof line.|
|The wooden garage doors repeat the horizontal roof line and the vertical line of the stone pillars on either side.|
|The garden is full of mounding stones and conifers. This pathway leads to a gorgeous garden gate painted the same color as the house.|
|The garden gate.|
I took these photos on a gorgeous, cold, sunny day - please excuse the overexposed photos!
|The mysterious main entry is masked by the enormous, old juniper. |
...If only natural stone would have been used in the hardscape!
