A garden in the Bahamas makes the most of a small lot with hardscape and lush plantings

Ed Ball Landscape Architecture was hired by clients in the Bahamas to design a garden on a small lot surrounded by water. Principal, Ed Ball created circulation within the diminutive spaces, making them feel bigger while also linking the property to the water via steps down to the dock.

“We used vertical lines in our design and allowed the adjacent properties to expand the views beyond the property lines,” Ball explains. The landscape features ficus, neem trees and coconut palms framing textured-concrete steppers and coral stone. Strips of synthetic lawn and pavers in the driveway add visual interest.
