Zen Estate 2002
Bel Air, California
Over the past twenty years Glen successfully completed two important home landscape projects for me, a terraced English garden in Pasadena with a pool and spa in 1986, and more recently a new landscape design with strong Asian accents in 2002, inclusive of a lap pool, tennis court, spa and koi pond.
In Pasadena Glen perfectly designed the landscape to compliment the San Rafael neighborhood and the architecture of the house. In Bel Air the landscape was designed to reflect my long standing interest and collection of Asian arts. The secluded and quiet location of the property was beautifully enhanced by the "Zen" design Glen envisioned from building a koi pond located at the front entrance off the carriage way, designing a spa augmented by slate and rock steps to reflect an Asian sensibility, to the use of various Asian grasses and planting of Japanese maple trees.
Glen designed and contracted both projects, which were completed on schedule and on budget. I couldn't have been more pleased with both projects from start to finish, and of course with the final product. I highly recommend Glen for his first rate inspired designs, professional integrity, and his thoroughness in overseeing the work to insure completion at the highest standards.
