Dreaming of a Zen garden, love succulents and want drama in your small yard? Not a problem! This modern themed garden creates a softening effect by using Ipe fences with custom sheer descent fountain with an embedded opaque glass. Stepping pads have been placed on artificial turf to create a sense elongated space. Black bamboo is used as a privacy screen and various rolled pebbles are used to contrast the Ipe, turf and succulents.

This project is a great example of what can be accomplished with limited space. The backyard yard is no more than 12 feet wide (3.60m) and 35 feet long (10m), yet Studio H Landscape Architecture was able to accommodate the client’s needs.

All plants are evergreen and look terrific year-round. Waterwise and drought tolerant, they are also low maintenance. A really terrific backyard!
