Riviera Residence

This Mediterranean-style garden celebrates the character and quality of the Old World with a color scheme of silvery greens, purples, and whites. A high efficiency, low water use and weather based irrigation system is designed to supply the necessary water requirements for the selected planting areas and palettes.

To reinforce indoor/outdoor relationships on-site, our design improved and framed the site’s unique views, provided privacy and safety through a perimeter treatment, and created a circulation hierarchy. A lap pool, putting green, bocce court, and outdoor kitchen were designed for ultimate comfort and leisure.

The existing landscape is filled with large and unique specimen plants. This unusual horticultural diversity was implemented with the intention of being reworked at a later time, to create a resort-like setting. For example, the large plants with bold form are easily transplanted, and may be carefully re-placed for drama. Masses of colorful plantings can be added to create unity. The two large Plumeria trees, rarely found of this size in Santa Barbara, set the stage for a true resort experience in your landscape.
