When we bought our home, the patio was a mess; an Areca palm tree jungle mix with anything that will grow on them and with them. So we cut them all out and just left the mango tree to have a bigger area for the girls to play and where we can extend our house in a future. We replaced all the grass since what we had left from the previous owners were horrible patches of weed.
|Although the some materials and sizes changed, at the end the original concept evolved for the better.|
|Creating an edge around this area served as another opportunity to plant more succulents and agave (both available from Costa Farms here in Miami) and to emphasize the minimalist look of the design. After planting these I carefully placed gravel in some areas and small white pebbles in other.|
|Rustic plant pots add a textural drama to this area. They have the perfect size so I could plant more than one succulent.|
|Chillaxing around this area is now our new hobby!|
