This property started with a few key elements we were able to easily incorporate and utilize in a beautiful way. Existing shade for some unique evergreen tropicals including grumichama, jaboticaba and Cherry of the Rio Grande. Additionally, there was a gorgeous pergola center stage. While it was not structurally sound enough to attach a porch swing directly like the homeowner desired, we were able to design a custom stand alone swing feature that did the trick! By paneling in the sides it created a seamless builtin appearance. A new pool designed on an elevated platform creates immediate interest and depth in the landscape. This plan includes a beautiful side yard garden with fruit trees, raised beds, edible perennials and a small turf lawn to play and picnic on. By connecting the spaces with integrated pavers this tropical and productive backyard paradise will please the eye, while feeding the body & soul!
