A large date palm balances the scale of the architecture of this house, and helps to keep the size of the pool pavilion at right in perspective. The palm is underplanted with Alternanthera dentata. Elsewhere, agaves within beds of stone add a sculptural element. The swimming pool is heated by solar panels on the roof of the pavilion. The landscape is by Rolling Stone Landscapes.
