Daily Garden 063: Hedgerow District: by DesignArc

Is this a great design trend emerging?  I love that I am seeing more and more projects where designers are throwing out the old notion of a simple path from the driveway or sidewalk to the front door and instead re-imagining the front garden into something completely new, more functional and complimentary to the architecture.

This home was designed by architect/owner Mark Kirkhart, founder and principal of DesignArc, Inc. and  is located in Montecito’s “Hedge Row” district.

The back garden is just as stunning as the front.  I love the bold move with the concrete wall and the pool that is built into the hill side such that it has a sitting edge along one side is genius.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
