The Laurence E Fosgate team is wrapping up phase two of our sod-less landscape transformation in Rio Pinar. The homeowner wanted to eliminate almost all sod for their home and this project allows us to show just how that is done. The principal ground covers used were perennial peanuts, minima jasmine and purple queen. Other plants used in large quantities included bulbine and day lilies.

Today we will go to Vero Beach to make a series of drawings and photographs for a garden across the street from the waterfront home of Willy, Emily and Glenn Tremml. They recently purchased the half acre lot for the purpose of turning it into an elaborately landscaped garden. We're just beginning the design process, but one of my ideas is to construct a ruin- perhaps Maya inspired with shades of Machu Pichu and Angor Wat. We'll see what comes of that over time. This will give our readers a chance to experience how a really grand project evolves through the interaction of clients and how the progression of projects themselves begin to define the process. There is so much that goes into the something like this. I feel confident it will be spectacular. Our first project in Maitland was featured in Great Gardens by the Orlando Sentinel.

A couple of weeks ago, we had the pleasure of doing another travertine paver project in Celebration. The color chosen is known as "Glacier" and it is a very clean white hue. Once we created this great space, it became painfully apparent that the view of the neighbors house was less than inviting, so we applied for (and just last night received) permission for some eight foot trellises flanked by podocarpus and trimmed out with some boxwood, flax lily and minima jasmine. A chinese fan palm and 2 queen palms will provide additional screening and greenery. The landscape will have both a lush and manicured, neat appearance and should provide a perfect backdrop for outdoor living.
