New York transplants want to live the California dream
Designed by Scott Cohen
The Green Scene specializes in hardscapes, lighting, woodwork and waterscapes. Cohen recently taught two seminars during the Backyard Living Expo in Las Vegas last month. For more information about Cohen, see "Winners: The Green Scene," in LM's March issue.
The pool is plastered in a mix of blue and black 3M Colorquartz with a white plaster base. Black glass tiles with an iridescent quality accent the waterline and blend with the slate coping. The clients gutted the interior and turned the house into a contemporary showplace, and wanted a landscape with similar clean, elegant lines.
The client found a stainless steel tile that was incorporated into the outdoor kitchen backsplash and on a recessed panel in the counter walls. It tied in well with the steel weirs that spill from the spa and back of the pool. The outdoor kitchen was completely remodeled and was constructed with polished cast concrete countertops.
In this "before" shot of the front yard, some of the plantings were kept and others removed. Designer Scott Cohen notes a lot of different grasses were used.
|Plantings include fescue, purple fountain grass, mondo grass, New Zealand flax, papyrus, horsetail, foxtail ferns and dwarf heavenly bamboo.|
