Landscaping Statement - Green Environmental At Structure It, the landscaping that goes into each Green Home & Estate is designed

with a “serene & timeless” theme so as the Owner can take full refuge in an environment that’s serene & tranquil. For each Green Home & Estate landscape design challenge that we face, we begin by placing the garden at center focus, so that it flows seamlessly between the inside and the outside , that the garden and residence become a single, natural-looking element. The garden elements for each Green Home & Estate are carefully designed to incorporate the principals of Spanish traditions. Our mission is to design and create “serene & timeless” gardens which incorporate the Five Elements: Earth, Wood, Fire, Metal and Water. No one element is dominant of the other and each has its own theme of materials, and which the elements of hardscape and softscape become distinctive in design for each property, which lends an enhancement for the Owner’s luxurious lifestyle. Each garden developed will afford the Owner the utmost in privacy and security while providing beautiful spaces for enjoyment & entertainment. The “serene & timeless” gardens for each Green Home & Estate also incorporate Clarity, Complexity, Mystery and Refuge; these characterizations can be discovered with the movements of the garden. This is achieved by the planting of gardens, placement of rocks, free-flowing stone path lines, pools and water features. The use of trees at key points provides movement and sound to the garden, while birds, butterflies, wildlife and fish become an integral part of the landscape, as well as preserving as much of the open space as possible by incorporating any existing hills, trees, and ponds. The lighting that the landscape & garden provides, clarifies and highlights all the unique elements, as well as providing low-lit, energy efficient lighting in which the illumination guides one through the various complexities and mysteries of the landscape while trees with interesting branches are enhanced & silhouetted against one another elements by the unique placement of illumination. Complexity and mystery is achieved through the use of lighting from above and below to aid in creating night shadows on the ground, while lighting is also designed to have a calming effect, in which to provide the atmosphere of refuge from the outside world. For each Green Home & Estate landscape we develop, may it be an appreciation for generations to come and that the creativity and uniqueness of our “classical & timeless” designs continue to put one’s body & soul in which to retreat from the elements of the exterior world. Structure It incorporates the following areas, but not limited to:     

Hardscape: BBQ’s, Fire-pits & Fireplaces. Pools & Spa’s: Free-form, Formal, Grecian & Infinity Edge. Waterscape: Fish Ponds, Fountains, Grotto’s, Landscape Boulders, Streams & Waterfalls.

Trees are like free-air conditioners on your landscaping; they provide shade and continually give off water vapor, cooling the property around them. “Green Design” consultants who support LEED Standards for GREEN construction in which we utilize all aspects of green design technologies.
