The clients for this yard wanted a modern sleek yard that complemented the modern building they had recently built. To fulfill this desire, I designed this yard only using straight lines and 90 degree angles. However, when it came to the style of planting, I choose to work with a juxtaposition. Along the neighbor's building and also the entrance into the courtyard from the street, I choose to plant native species and to organize the plants in a free flowing manner. In the center of the yard, I planted non-native plants in a very organized and rhythmic manner. By doing this, the yard is both controlled and free at the same time.
