Front yard landscaping is designed on the theme of "Japanese Gardens"
With the use of pavers, stone & shrubs we have tried to create a ambient environment.
Softscape area right at the front of house has been taken in the porch. Thus now the porch is extended throughout the length of the house.
Front lawn area is created in the front of the house with seating space. Circular flooring patterns are used using pavers, gravel and grass in this area.
Steps which take you to the house are of concrete pavers, designed in form of Japanese garden steps with stone boulders and shrubs along the path.
Ficus tress, pine tress & citrus trees are retained. Other tress are replaced with Mediterranean tress planted along the perimeter. These trees can be:
1. English Lavender
2. True laurel
3. Autumn Daffodil
4. Common Olive
Semi circular paver hedge is created along the tress for protection.
Roof of the garage is imagined as a deck space with deck flooring. Seating and relaxing chairs can be put in this area.
We propose to have sprinklers are removed and install drip irrigation for the tress and grass.
4-5" high bamboo screen is proposed along the perimeter for visual partition. Creepers / vines can be planted to cover the partial area of the screen.
