Carpenter Residence
The landscape architect strived to create a simple and sensible design that mimicked the Mojave Desert as per the client’s desire. The ground plane utilized earthy and neutral colors to complement the natural hues of the residence. The owner’s sunny, south-facing front yard needed plantings that could tolerate the harsh desert conditions. Setting the tone, large boulders with colors to match the decomposed granite field color were scattered judiciously yet strategically throughout in order to accent the softscape. Large specimen trees and colorful ornamentals indigenous to the arid climate of the high desert were chosen to create the sculptural allure. An inviting courtyard is the destination through a highly architectural archway entrance was constructed with water conserving plant material of varying heights, seasonal color, textures, and fragrances to attract native wildlife.
