This design was inspired by travels to Latin America. The client, an avid travel photographer, wanted a space that reminded him of the beautiful courtyards of old Mexican pueblos. Working with designer Trish Grantham, we created a stenciled tile-like patio as the center-piece, with planting borders along the perimeter. The fences were trellised with custom steel, and vined with star jasmine. A wood and steel pergola was constructed off the back deck, and stairs were reconfigured for improved ergonomics. We cut the soil with pumice and gravel in order to culture a very specific planting palette. Voila! Bienvenido!
