David Young, of DWY landscape architects, says the goal behind this Hawthorne Street home was to create a little drama but still keep it simple.
Everything came down to attention to detail. Nothing about the landscaping is organic, free-form or cutesy.
“It is good form, a nice composition in the courtyard and an interesting plant selection,” Young says. “The little water feature in the pool is on the axis with the dining room and, for us, it’s the total design that speaks to the way it is going to be used. No one thing stands out. There are no annuals staring at you. It’s understated that way.”
