Water and Garden in a Small Space: the Weaver Residence by Huettl

You do not have to have land on a grand scale to have a “grand” yard area this Weaver residence garden location, as done by Huettl Landscape Architecture, is proof of that. In reality, this is not the “back yard” of this property at all, but a little, rather narrow side yard, that is graced with this beautiful swimming pool and patio terraces of alternating concrete colors. Just appear at that beautiful mosaic impact along the edges of the pool — equally striking in sun or shade, and in reality complementing the colors of the plantings that surround the water. Note the “clumping” bamboo that appears something but “clumpy” — its gossamer leaves are as light as waves on a pond, in splendid contrast to purple-spiked water plants and swaying prairie grass. And, speaking of ponds…

Even though this distinct “pond” doesn’t have any waves, it does have copper waterspouts — a delightful addition that not only creates a relaxing ambience, but makes swimming even a lot more entertaining. Grouped around this inviting water spot are all the comforts of great outside living: a compact portable fireplace 1 seating region with pottery art accent a second spot with alfresco table, chairs, and umbrellas for handy shade and a wide deck flanked by tall native grasses that provide both privacy screening and subtle color. But there’s another surprise in this compact garden, too: a winding stone path leads to an further patio — a tiny niche with its own water cascade— and a cedar-framed greenhouse at its end. It is a splendid mixture of outside “rooms” in compact space: the Weaver garden, as executed by Huettl Landscape Architecture.
