Jeffrey Gordon Smith landscape architecture

I love gardening and really appreciate decent landscaping when I see it. I nearly had a coronary when Jeffrey of the firm Jeffrey Gordon Smith Landscape Architecture contacted us and I had a peek at his website. His landscape design skills are incredible and so freaking creative. His firm is based in Los Osos, California, and 'he has a strong conviction toward a “regional style”, encouraging the owners of his designs to celebrate where they live and create a stronger connection through their landscape'. I have a slightly different mindset living so far up north (unfortunately) that I love to use tropical plants (succulents are my favourites) so I can pretend I live somewhere far warmer. LOL. In any case, I'm not sure how feasible that driveway in the photo above is for Canadian climate when it would be covered in snow at least half the year and require shoveling but I'd LOOOVE something that non-traditional.

These designs are beautiful. I'd be happy with almost any one of them. Some day I'd like to create a patio in our side yard using pavers surrounded by grass like the first few photos. Thanks so much for sharing and have a lovely weekend!

Jeffrey's use of fire pits in his landscape designs are really creative and very inviting.

I think I saw some of his work before in Sunset Magazine. It's magnificent and it's wonderful to see more of it! I wish he'd come to So Cal and work on my front yard! :)

I can't imagine how inspiring it would be to look out onto any one of those landscapes each day! The grid is amazing. Have a lovely weekend, ladies!
