Contemporary – Refined – West-Coast Tropical Rainforest with an Asian Twist.
This rural west coast forest opening in the mountains, accommodates many recreation activities such as the pool & spa area, the pool house & outdoor shower, the fire-bowl & many of the outdoor lounging rooms around the property. Also included is a covered outdoor kitchen, dining, living room with fireplace area, vegetable garden, chicken coop run and a water bowl fountain feature.
Nestled among creeks and old growth forests this remodeled garden was paramount in reflecting the adjacent native character of the property.
Site planning was designed to accommodate a new pool enclosure, eroding banks stabilized with local boulders & terraces, new architectural concrete walls & stairs for ease of movement.
Features also include: in-house designed & fabricated aluminum self-closing gates with acrylic panel in-lays, custom designed and built clear cedar fencing with 1/4″ stainless steel aircraft cables, all new planting with emphasis on edibles, unique/rare species & natives, an apple orchard, beautiful black clay pottery from Vietnam and all new garden lighting & irrigation bringing this forest to life at night.

Everything looked so amazing after you had been, and still does. We like to have our morning coffee and do a little stroll around every morning.
Thanks Again, loving the garden!!
