The Green Guide
The guest bathroom doubles as the powder room (thus saving space) it is located directly off the entry way and close to the great room.
Bamboo plantings interlaced with morning glory at the property boundaries create living walls for the garden space and visual privacy from the street.
A variety of plants, accustomed to the local Mediterranean climate and rainfall, surround the house. The plants were also selected for their fragrance, filling the garden with sweet aromas year round.
Water for much of the garden is generated from the graywater system that recycles water used in the house.
Natural stone and wooly thyme interlace to provide a transition between indoor and outdoor space.
The front walkway contains flyash and recycled cobalt blue glass cullet that sparkles in the moonlight. The walkway is flanked by papyrus that gently guides people to and from the front door.
Water from the site drains into a swale that better distributes the water.
