Mediterranean Estate

A lovely older estate underwent remodeling. In the first phase of renovation, the existing pool patio was redesigned with new travertine paving and classical elements like stone walls and a lion head fountain.

We added bold stripes of lawn and paving and more contemporary planting with grasses and perennials to give the landscape more personality. 

Next the neglected side yard got a Mediterranean update with mature olive trees and a fruit orchard, low stonewalls, and large swaths of blooming lavender and white roses.

The gravel patio under the olive trees is now a favorite dining spot.
