Courtyard Garden

This backyard design is built around a large existing magnolia tree that sits at its center. Its dappled shade is cast upon a blanket of crushed blue green stone.

The perimeter garden of sculptural succulents is backed by the rich tones of an existing ipe fence.

In a sunnier adjacent space, large concrete pavers set amid a lawn of drought tolerant Dymondia lead to a concrete fire pit and bench. The plants here are large, leafy philodendrons that complement the fine texture of black bamboo and asparagus ferns. 

Kangaroo paws and bougainvillea provide a splash of vibrant color.
