The border outside the master bedroom, featuring Phormium ‘Red-Dark Green,’ Asparagus densiflorus, kangaroo paws, and Cyperus papyrus, offers a balance of color, texture, and height. Vintage chaises were freshened up with striped Holly Hunt fabric.
Bright orange wall-mounted fiberglass DL Domino planters, designed by Malcolm Leland, were purchased from architecturalpottery.com.

For the front of the house, Kameon used a mix of black and white plants, such as Phormium ‘Platt's Black,’ silver Artemisia ‘Powis Castle,’ Aeonium ‘Zwartkop,’ and Agave mediopicta ‘Alba.’
Mapping Out a Makeover
1. A curved wall was transformed into a seating area with a fire pit.
2. A bold moment was achieved by simply painting a fence glossy black and planting a row of columnar conifers.
3. A white stucco wall was brightened by the addition of bright orange wall-mounted vessels planted with an array of succulents.
4. The outdoor dining area was situated under a partially open roof.
5. A whimsical Aloe 'Hercules' was planted as a living sculpture surrounded by lower-growing succulents and ground-hugging Juniperus procumbens 'Nana."
6. The patio area was added, making room for a couple of chaises.
7. A portion of front lawn was removed in lieu of a more showstopping garden and drought-tolerant design with a plant palette of black and white to tie in with the architecture.
