The front and back gardens of this intimate property in Venice, CA was updated to match the modern aesthetic of the clients. Hidden behind a custom-designed privacy fence, the homeowners and guests walk along a wooden boardwalk to the front entry. The path inspired by the beach boardwalks of the East Coast, is surrounded by a soft, drought-resistant plants.
The small back garden was thoughtfully programmed for a variety of entertaining possibilities. The multi-platform back deck of Ipe wood and concrete can be used as a seating option. Visitors meander to an intimate outdoor dining area surrounded by an allee of African sumac trees.
