We will be replacing the case studies on our web-site. So here's a last look at what's there:
This La Jolla project started from a ground-up remodel of a cottage that sits on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Bird Rock. The owners wanted to create more privacy and interest to the front of their newly remodeled home. Some of the original brick planters were left in place, so we worked off of them in style and texture. Flagstone and salvaged bricks were mixed in patterns providing an old world cottage charm with an updated twist. There were garden art objects to locate and drives and walks to consider. Because of the proximity to the ocean, plants were selected that can hold up to the salt spray in the environment. Every nook of this garden was utilized. Even a narrow side yard became an inviting little meditation spot with a cute park bench with surrounding brick planters. Since the rear patios were right on the ocean cliff, we designed raised planters to eliminate the need for railings and fences that would interrupt the views. Stone and salvaged brick veneers were used to provide a continuity of style with the front courtyards.
