The visitor can listen to the flowing water or watch the hummingbirds that frequent the water feature to get a drink.
Designed around the idea that gardens are extensions of living space, this garden wraps around the house. This allows the indoor space to flow into the outdoor spaces and creates multiple garden areas.
There are two front rose gardens--a public one behind a rose arbor, and a private one tucked behind a custom designed rod-iron gate. The private rose garden contains several iron sculptures and a flowing corner fountain.
The formal sitting/dining area is bordered by fruit trees and flowers that lend privacy to the sitting areas and divide the spaces. The entire back fence of the property is painted to create an illusion of depth that merges into the garden and skyline.
The back garden that is adjacent to the kitchen area of the house has the continuation of the fruit tree garden and the informal dining area surrounded by overflowing hanging baskets and herbs. The house library opens to the "Library Garden" that contains a koi pond, rose filled parterres and fruit trees. From a sitting area under a sprawling grapefruit tree overlooking the koi pond, the visitor can listen to the flowing water or watch the hummingbirds that frequent the water feature to get a drink.
