Malibu Estate Renovation

This estate was built in the early 1980s and a tennis facility was added in the late 80s.  The estate had sat empty for a couple of years prior to the present owners buying the property. Needless to say, the garden infrastructure and plantings were in need of an overhaul but the estate had great “bones.” We removed trees to let in light, modernized irrigation systems with waters-saving technology, refreshed the lighting system and solved drainage problem. The client loves color and so the final planting was a rich tapestry of color. We added a bamboo walk, a raised stone-walled kitchen garden and huge rose and perennial gardens. With the addition of the client's art within the landscape, the estate became a true gem.
