California Contemporary

In Napa Valley, Calif., the Scott Lewis Landscape Architecture Design Team turned this former traditional perennial garden into a tailored space with a contemporary aesthetic. The layout encourages visitors to stroll through the property, from the front entrance walkway to the pool to olive trees at the rear of the property. The design was a 2014 American Society of Landscape Architects award winner.

Sculpted Garden

The terrain of a 2014 American Society of Landscape Architects award-winning garden in Brazil was shaped into plateaus framed by Corten steel retaining walls with embedded LED lighting. Designer Alex Hanazaki created a contemporary approach to the landscape, which echoed the home's architecture. He also brought in topiary plants and Jabuticaba, a native fruit tree.

Sublime Setting

Olive trees were saved and replanted when five villas were created on a sloped site in Turkey. CEVSA Landscape Firm brought in a native Bodrum mandarin and citrus trees, lavender, and native drought and salt tolerant grasses and herbaceous plantings, according to the American Society of Landscape Architects, which named the project a residential design award winner in 2012.
