WHAT WE DID
NEW ORLEANS COURTYARD
This newly constructed Memorial Home in the prestigious Spring Valley is the perfect spot for our clients to build new roots. The Sample Family were raised in New Orleans and wanted to bring a bit of the French Market to their new residence. As they love to entertain, we set out to add extra living space with an outdoor kitchen, pergola and rich travertine patio. In addition, a seated Bench is the perfect low divider to frame our custom fountain space.
To Five the samples a screened-in courtyard feel, we planted Japanese Blueberry, Podocarpus, East Palatka Holly along the fence line. This ensures that they can be maintained below the power line, keep a beautiful shape and not overwhelm the intimate landscape. Lush evergreen blooming plant material anchors several planted arrangements that are filled with color.
With the addition of outdoor lighting and lighting integrated into the hardscape and fountain, the Sample Family now has a bit of the Big Easy year round, day or night to relax and enjoy.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF MANY VIEWS!
Starting a landscape design begins by taking in many views. Make sure when planning a landscape, start in the interior of the residence and look out from every window. Next stroll outside and find different areas to create unique focal points. This can be a sitting area, a water or statue feature or a dramatic planting area to draw your eye.
Two water features too many?
Not if you individualize them
MAKING WATER FEATURES POP!
Our wall fountain is too dark and a bit too small o get a dramatic response on its own. Take advantage of the situation and create a wall background, using existing brick and stone to bring a cohesive feel and create a dramatic impact.
Not every space requires a traditional fountain. We chose three gorgeous large urns to use as disappearing fountains. Transforming an ordinary small entry into a eye-popping welcome. Lighting the fountains allows the Sample's to enjoy their exterior living space day or night!
