Plan Description

Originally developed for gardens in the arid regions of the Mediterranean, the walled oasis is a low-maintenance concept that can be adapted to any area and any size property. The relatively small yard shown here is ideally arranged for anyone who enjoys outdoor living more than gardening, yet there are enough plants, both inside and immediately outside the walls, to soften hard surfaces and provide some color and a sense of lushness. The seven-foot-high walls give homeowners privacy without making them feel confined, thanks to the window openings in the stucco walls and the see-through iron gates. The designer carefully crafts the view through the main window to include a statue, which is positioned at the end of the sight line to create a dramatic focal point. Shrubs with variegated foliage and colorful bark create an unusually beautiful view through the smaller window. Two water features, a fountain and a cascade, provide soothing sound effects and coolness in the heat of summer. Soft-textured evergreen trees are positioned for privacy, while three horizontally branching flowering trees add drama throughout the year. A hedge bordering the semicircular lawn may be pruned formally (if you're willing to put in the extra effort), or left to grow naturally for a softer appearance. The flagstones in the terrace are set in concrete for easy maintenance. Although the lawn is small enough for quick mowing, it can be replaced with a groundcover that needs no mowing at all. Low-maintenance water features are the focal points in this walled oasis, just as they were in the original Mediterranean versions. More than just decorative, the cascading water has a calming and cooling effect.

Additional Options

Additional Construction Sets :
Additional hard copies of the plan (can be ordered at the time of purchase and within 90 days of the purchase date).
Mirror Reversed Sets :
A mirror-reversed set is a printed copy of your house, resulting in the same image you would see if you held the drawing up to a mirror. Everything, including the text, is backward in relation to the original design. These kinds of drawing are typically used to reorient an original plan more advantageously on a site, either because the homeowner prefers it that way or because of limitations of the site itself. Note: Mirror reverse sets are only available with a 5 copy or 8 copy set. With a Reproducible, PDF, or CAD set, you can print mirrored copies locally. In addition: 5 Copy set selected, should only allow 4 mirrored sets to be selected. 8 Copy set selected, should only allow 7 mirrored sets to be selected.
