The project included landscaping design and installation for the entire front and back yards in a style to harmonize with this Mediterranean inspired home. The Lush native Mediterranean flora, including fan palms and colorful drought tolerant plantings with Dymondea and grasses, surround a 20-foot swimming pool with clean, contemporary lines, in-ground jacuzzi tub, and umbrella-covered raised patio offering comfortable dining space for ten.

Deliberate use of travertine paving continues the Mediterranean vibe while tile accents and potted plants, teaming with colorful flowers and succulents, add to the visual delight.

This landscape design, in Los Altos, CA, truly transports the homeowner and their guests to the sunny Mediterranean!

“Creating an environment that included pet friendly and drought tolerant plantings was important. The end result is a landscape awash in color with varied textures and shapes perfectly surrounding the hardscapes and entertaining areas.”
