bed and breakfast garden designs
The owners of this Glen Ellen property wanted to create a Bed and Breakfast oasis-like environment for their family and many friends who often came to visit. Leff Landscape Associates, Inc created terraces with fire pits, a hot tub, and ample seating areas so guests would feel secluded, yet pampered. Intriguing pathways with comfortable steps and interesting textures circle the property. Mature Palm, Olive and Cypress trees were brought in to give an established feel to the landscape. Similar Gardens have been created in Sonoma, Napa and Marin.
Master Bedroom Terrace:
Facing the front entrance drive, the bedroom terrace has its own sense of privacy with the columns and planting bed separating it from the front lawn. This is a perfectly romantic spot for watching the sunset.
Main Terrace off of the Family Room:
This is the biggest and most popular evening spot due to the fire place. The circular form is reflected in the surrounding wall. The new landscape respects the grades of the existing Native Oaks. The paths, patio and fire pit are well away from the base of the trees and all new watering is directed away from these trees that do not like wet feet in the summer.
Welcome Evening Entrance:
Lighting the architectural elements makes them more dramatic, and presents a welcome entry to visitors and guests.
Pool Terrace and Guest House
There are entertainment opportunities throughout this property, and each has its own design elements that make it special.
