The forms and proportions of the Bridge Hollow landscape are clean, powerful, and timeless. The crisp geometries defining the courts, terraces, and water features are countered and softened with textural plantings. Deliberate compositions of precise geometry and detailing speak of the Landscape Architect’s intention to create clean, modern spaces balanced with intimate detail.
Mature and significant Live Oak, Monterrey Oak, Lacebark Elm, Autumn Blaze Maple, and Natchez Crepe Myrtle were planted to give the appearance of always being there. The lower plantings were chosen for their architectural forms and native qualities.
The front of the property is lined with Crepe Myrtles and a low evergreen hedge for a filtered view of the home from the street and a sense of privacy from within the residence. A graciously wide front walk and linear site wall greets and leads guests to the front door. The Landscape Architect placed another low site wall to create an entry courtyard and designed a shallow pebble-filled water feature that provides beautiful reflective images for both the living and dining rooms. The master bathroom courtyard was created by placing tall walls covered with fig ivy and a large driftwood sculpture centered on the bathroom window in a clean bed of gravel. The rear garden court has a level lawn panel with low plantings and step down to a lower terrace with a zero edge and negative edge pool. A trellis and open fire feature wall create a lounging space at the end of the pool.
