Before and After

“Ozeta House”


Pool Seating Area

A very difficult planting area (due to shade and position) was transformed into a striking living space to take advantage of A.M. light and P.M. shade, while the fire pit evaporates evening humidity.

Raised Poolside Planter

This feature was adorned with mirrored balls and planted with turquoise-blue senecio succulents, which are low-maintenance, take advantage of winter rains, and pick up on the azure theme.

The tent, dark tiles, and brick patio, which seemed outdated and incongruent with the Mediterranean-white house, gave way to new plantings, white tiles, and a decking of creamy sandstone flag.

The view from the cool, shaded patio and tea garden reaches across a calm rectangular pool to a whimsical fountain area at the other end of the property. But the view wasn’t always so charming.
