The Story

L.A. Design Associates executed a complete transformation in this renovation of a private garden for a Disney concept designer and worked closely in a collaborative manner with the Owner in developing the lush garden imagery.

Key to the design is a feeling of refuge and a sense of fantasy in the ‘hidden’ garden. Elements of the project include a pool with arching jets along the edges, a spa, a Japanese influenced pool pavilion, a Koi pond, a covered swing, a wood overhead structure over the back entry, and raised decking adjacent to the house, stone paving, lush planting, and a wood sunscreen to filter sunlight from streaming into the Owner’s studio. For the Owner’s pet, an electronic sensor activates a special ‘doggie drinker’ as the pet approaches the source – a sculptural lizard.
