This residential garden was reinvented as a series of outdoor rooms. The area for the spa + sun deck is enclosed on two sides by a lush green wall and surrounded by a wood deck, making the space a visual focal point seen from the entire property. An avid entertainer, the client wanted a better space to accommodate gatherings and spur conversation.

Amongst the new outdoor rooms, the green wall emerged as the focal point, providing both spatial definition and a highly concentrated planting articulated as an art piece.

The designer used Tournesol's VGM system for the green wall, planted with a rich and diverse plant palette of colorful succulents and lush grassy foliage, to provide a dynamic living art element. A stone panel fountain and shower are incorporated into the greenwall, framed by lush foliage of bright colors and varied textures, creating a playful, ever-changing composition.
