Lotus Fountain Garden

This newly planted garden in Aliso Viejo, California was inspired by the owners' world travels. we wanted to create a garden that was based on the designs of the early Persian gardens which divides the spaces up into quadrants (chahar bagh), an effect we achieved by dividing the concrete paving with green mossy seams. 

We planted Bamboo behind the low white stucco seat wall to create a solid lush green background. all plants are shades of green with a hint of deep burgundy in the kangaroo paws.

The unique custom fountain spills over into a recirculating basin below to create a feeling of calm.  the low stucco wall provides extra seating at social gatherings. More photos to come when the plantings grow in.
