Chris and Hilary Erickson Residence, Camarillo

I love to work with small spaces. A postage-stamp yard only fourteen feet deep required detailed attention to create this entertainment garden. Floating paving pads accomodate the small scale to comfortable circulation and family garden activity. Via careful paving design, the area easily accommodates parties of twenty-five people or more, bringing planting dimensionally into the space.

The unique and lush combination of Asian, Mediterranean, and American subtropical plants soften the enclosure and create the whimsical outdoor living room the Erickson’s sought. Plant selection is key to this inviting space.
