      The best window box is the one you can't see. Whatever you planted in there should be so happy that it cascades down the wall to spill onto the sidewalk, threatening to trip passersby. #Coleus, #sweet #potato #vine, and #caladium: They like a little shade, which makes them the perfect combination to plant beneath a balcony or eave. Water them every day. Image via Stately. #garden #gardening #windowbox #container #jardin #garten

    Beside the pool is a separate building made of hand-cut stone and standing seam copper roof to house a powder room, changing room, toys and pillows. In between the doors is also a outdoor shower to rinse off.

    Flowing over the rock retaining wall, the waterfall streams into the manmade pond below surrounded by rocks and lush plants.

    After passing through the courtyard doors, you are welcomed by dual fountain features that frame the walkway and provide a tranquil feeling upon entry into this private space. Finding the right glass waterline tile for fountain and spa was difficult since we wanted it to be complementary to the antique brick and terra cotta paving colors, but the Bamboo Blend (Weave Series from Walker Zanger) provide the right balance of color, while also providing enough of a highlight.

    The entry to the courtyard shows how the front bubbling urn fountain features are centered with the walkway and front door, and how the dual fountains frame the walkway, all working together to provide a soothing, yet dramatic space. Since the home's materials were neutral, adding a wide variety of planting colors soften the walls and ground plane and provide the contrast in color that was desperately needed.

    By providing a quaint bubbling fountain feature from this Terra Cotta pottery, it allowed for a focal feature for both guests who arrive and those that depart since it is centered in both the entry walkway and the front door. Due to Terra Cotta flooring being used throughout most of the interior of the house, it was critical to link the exterior by using the same material. By using it as a banding material, steps, some veneer and the pottery, the link was established without being overwhelming.

    The front walkway design had to balance two major objectives. The first being safety and the reducing the number of steps as much as possible, and two, providing a clear highlight for guests to see when entering the property. The entry walkway to the home had to be a balance of elegance and simplicity. Due to the age of the clients, we needed to reduce the number of steps to as little as possible, while adding as much traction to the walkway as possible.

    A modern pergola surrounded by lush greenery sets apart this intimate, modern outdoor dining space. A concrete fire structure is long and low, echoing the lines of the slatted ceiling, while ample seating provides spots for guests to dine or lounge for casual conversation.

    A unique water feature is set into the gray ground of this modern terrace, adding to the tranquility of the natural scene. Meanwhile, powder-coated white metal furniture is low and minimal, inviting conversation.
