This oriental-inspired design of beautiful rich wooden decks and boxed ponds sets the ambiance for utter peace and calm. Let your dreams rule, as you close your eyes and listen to the steady sound of the waterfalls. The amount of greenery and plants add enough to please the eye, yet allows feng shui to rule. H20 Designs use only a minimal amount of water for operation, and utilise recycled rainwater from the environment. A hidden water storage unit is installed to keep water features functioning for extended periods of time without tapping into external water supplies. H20 Designs will create an outdoor experience you didn’t know was possible, while conserving water and keeping the environment top on the list.

Landscape architect Tom Balsley drew his inspiration for the Redline outdoor bench from the way materials are used for airplanes. The result is a soaring one. The contemporary Redline bench from Landscape Forms is supreme in style and shape. The folded perforated sheet of steel created a seamless backing to the bench, offering comfort and desire. The benches are available with or without backs creating two very unique styles. Arm rests are optional – allotted spacing is ideal for benches near bus stops, or armless benches let people sit close after a romantic stroll in a park. The Redline bench helps you stay on the green path, being made of 90 per cent recycled materials, and is 100 per cent recyclable. You’ll find sophistication with these streamline benches, and the welded-on arm rests will serve for style and strength. Benches are shipped fully assembled from Landscape Forms.

It’s no wonder Pamela Burton & Company received the 2008 Residential Design Award of Honor from the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA). Pamela Burton & Company met the challenge of creating a sustainable and eye-pleasing landscape at a modern, oceanfront house that presented little opportunity for vegetation. It resulted in exquisite and an eco-friendly design. With dry beach sand as the ground cover, drought-tolerant grass and plants were situated in a manner that accentuates the open-concept layout. The plants act as both a border and a screen, to block out unwanted views. The ornamental grass simulates the California hillside, while the bright yellow Kangaroo Paws and Mexican Marigolds catch the eyes of all, reminding residents they can have a beautiful yard while using minimal water for maintenance.

An informal sandy walk connects the Main House entry with the Lap Pool and Guest House. A low maintenance, drought-tolerant planting palette reduces the carbon footprint.
