Garden to offer protection from corner traffic

Our client is a Super Daddy. The very first thing he requested was for us to design a garden that would protect his children and small dogs from traffic. And so we did. We installed massive basalt columns, 5/8th inch steel walls and trimmed it in gorgeous Ipe wood. 

When you are inside this garden, you definitely have the feeling of being safe, of being inside a protective sanctuary. 

The entry terrace is a great spot for riding tricycles, but it will also become a great place for a table or other furnishings once the kids get older.

There is a blend of nature, engineering and art in this garden. While the stone and metal is very strong, it is balance with delicate-looking plants (they are actually quite hardy). The metal sections in the photo to the right had to be set in concrete in such a way that the gap between them was consistent and straight. The precise placement of extremely heavy stone and metal components of this garden are a good example of design and implementation coming together.
