Stone work by Emerald Stone Masonry (www.esmasonry.com).
There were many objectives to the design but the overarching theme was privacy from the high pedestrian traffic, being close to a major park. Especially for the front yard. For the backyard functional sitting, gathering space for upper terrace was important.
Plant choices were primarily driven by flower color (white and periwinkle) but also year-round interest and foliage textures where important. The client enjoyed different design styles including, Mediterranean, NW, exotic/tropical, with some elements of Cottage/English. Combining all of these interests proved to be challenging but ultimately came together successfully.
