In 2016 FWLI had the privilege to work with the owners of this home in South Orange County’s Ladera Ranch gated community. Like several communities in our area, the homes are gorgeous and the lots spacious, but they can lack individuality and not necessarily keep up with trending design styles. FWLI is often asked to bridge the gap between an exterior of a home that cannot be changed with a more modern and sensible landscape.
While on holiday in Spain, Principal designer Ryan Prange conceptualized the landscape on a rainy day in an Airbnb. “The layout for the spaces uses repetition and formality… the plant material and mature trees will soften it and give a ‘park-like’ feel to the garden.”
Despite certain challenges of working in the County of Orange, the design was realized in late 2016. The family has since relocated to pursue new adventures. The home sold in less than 30 days in early 2017
Project highlights: Saltwater pool with automatic cover, entertaining area with galley-style outdoor kitchen, Bistro lighting, dedicated dog area, sport court and brand new landscaping.
