Laguna Hills Contemporary

Owners are enticed outdoors by capturing a western coastal canyon view in a new softly modern retreat-like environment, where previously harsh sun and winds prevented them from enjoying their property. A fountain provides a cooling element during the day and a fire bowl and subtly lit seatwall provide a warm place to gather in the evening. Sustainable design elements are used to create a low-maintenance garden that blends in visually with the hills beyond. Rockrose, grasses, sea lavender, and succulents combine with Olive and Cassia trees to create a drought-tolerant and fragrant garden.
