This small urban landscape design for the entry of a 1920s hillside house incorporates an eclectic mix of plantings with contemporary hardscape design using bluestone and pebbles. A custom-designed interpretation of the old carriage house doors updated the look while respecting the integrity of the architecture. The space is completed by a fountain which provides a welcoming presence for people as well as hummingbirds.
A white pergola lets sunlight sneak through to illuminate the long, contemporary dining table with bright, summery table settings. Bold orange accents pop against the industrial furniture and neutral floor. A grill is surrounded with counter space for additional seating or prepping.
