A combination of hardscaped pathways, architectural elements, and boxwood hedges, this stately garden in Orange County, California, transports you to a classic English garden. “The design was entirely the vision of the homeowner,” says Rick Remington of Remington Construction Services. “It was my task to turn those thoughts into something tangible.” Though the hedges might seem high maintenance, an electric clipper keeps them in tip-top shape — without requiring a professional gardener.
Excitement is permeating the outdoor space- just talk to an expert, and you'll feel it too. Materials, both new and centuries old, are transcending the ordinary, even the "high-end" rubric; instead, they are interesting, they evoke warmth-they tell a story. The key words are no longer form and function but rather, beauty and technology. Together, these two formerly opposite elements create intimate spaces that are vividly original.
