A man-made pond was added to welcome guests as they drive onto the property and around to her home. The serene body of water is edged with yellow iris, hyacinth, and lotus and accompanied by the peaceful bubbling sound of a recirculating fountain.[/fusion_builder_column]
Concrete furniture, made to look like tree branches using a faux bois technique (natural concrete poured over steel and sculpted by hand), sits by the pond as a vantage point to watch the koi swimming.
As you meander throughout the property, you’ll discover a variety of themed areas. There is a citrus garden with fruitful kumquat, Meyer lemon, and lime trees; a hydrangea garden with more than 100 colorful bushes; and a cutting garden where a mix of annuals and perennials are planted each season for snipping blooms and sprigs for floral arrangements inside the house.
