Modern Vineyard

In the heart of a historic drought, this new home overlooking the clients’ 72-acre vineyard in the Paso Robles wine region called for a water-wise landscape that could further enhance their stunning property. With this in mind, JGS designed a peaceful outdoor retreat responding directly to the surrounding hillside vineyards.

 

Applying a subdued color palette accentuated with Mediterranean grasses and timeworn olive trees, the new landscape anchored and blended the home into its surrounding environment.

 

Delicate plant textures that flutter in the wind softened the modern hardscape and architecture; creating a striking balance between the built and natural environments. Large drifts of drought tolerant grasses allowed for sweeping views to continue past the property line, to the clients’ vineyards and the rolling hills beyond.

 

The grasses were also selected to mirror the native vegetation as it fluctuates through the seasons, creating a strong sense of connection with the region. Using rugged boulders and gravel in conjunction with clean hardscape pavers, the project brought a fun California twist to the traditional modern aesthetic.
