SUMMERLAND RESIDENCE

This one-acre lakefront property in Winter Haven, FL needed a landscape renovation after its recent purchase by a young family with a keen eye for design. Phyla’s scope included the addition of a pool, spa, and outdoor shower, reconfiguring existing outdoor patios, and regrading the back lawn to reduce flooding instances. The clients wanted to include as many edible plants as possible so Phyla developed a list of attractive veggies, fruit trees, and herbs and distributed them to match the site’s various programs (bay rum tree next to the grill, citrus by the pool deck, scented herbs at the front door). Vegetable beds were integrated to fit in along an existing serpentine retaining wall.
