We designed the landscape to compliment the language of the clean, modern house. The three areas of the outdoor space are a minimal xeriscaped front yard outside the wall, a courtyard around the pool for lounging, and densly-planted, private backyard.  We used very mature plants to achieve privacy in the back and immediate specimen impact outside the leuder wall (installation not by OES).  As an addition, we fabricated the entry gate between the wall and house.
