Cut limestone slabs offer a stable path across the lawn providing an exterior walkway around the rear of the residence. The lawn provdes a groomed, irrigated contrast to the far larger remainder of the property
This residence is sited on a large lot with significant downward slope from the front property line to the rear. The landscape resolves the contrasting requirements of minimal water availability while providing for high volume, rapid runoff from the occasional severe storm. The owners desired the outer portions of their property to remain in a natural state while the residential center was developed in a native minimalist manner that would appear relatively seamless in transitioning one to the other.
