The owners of this home in Montecito were looking for a modern garden that would blend with coast live oak, olive, Monterey cypress trees and other native plants that existed within their property. A minimal plant and materials palette was curated to complement existing plants but that could be formally sculpted for sharp visual contrast.

An iconic lantern was also designed. Strategically placed in both the front and back yards, a soft glow emanates from a structured cage that mimics the clipped hedges.
