64 Landscape Architect and Specifier News Because this estate was flanked on either side by houses, tall privacy hedges were planted to obstruct views, on the ground level, into the neighboring homes. A second layer of palm trees was also planted behind the shrubs to conceal the second floor of the home as well. "The palm trees buffer the upper-story views and the hedges give you privacy while your sitting on the pool deck. So, it's sort of a two-story privacy buffer." For the irrigation found around the property, Booth used all Hunter appliances. The turf is watered with MP Rotator sprinkler heads, while the plant beds feature a PLD drip line irrigation system. Interestingly, the irrigation controller is powered by a solar panel. Team List: Oliveri Architects Bollenback Builders, Inc. Studio M Interior Design Right: Positioned on one of the terraces located in the backyard is this cozy, stained cedar deck, which features a custom fire pit. This type of wood was chosen to match the ceiling of the patio, tying the two places together. The fire pit was placed strategically to increase views of the water. Left: Twenty-four BK Lighting wall and step lights were installed thorough out the property. Twenty-six fixtures by FX Lighting, including ground mounted spotlights, tree mounted spotlights and path lights, were also placed in order to provide safety and usability during the nighttime environment.
