These low, sculptural walls were formed straight in concrete blocks, then cleverly rendered out to achieve the tapering sides.
To increase the sense of sliding motion in the garden, the travertine paving slopes up as the walls slope down.
Jesse Noble of Noble Landscapes described working with the travertine in December as 'like laying slabs of ice'.
