This recently completed residential project highlights just how quickly tropical and sub-tropical landscapes reach an appearance of maturity after installation. In only a year and a half, this small lot has gone from being a blank canvas to a lush, established garden.
Located in the heart of Hanalei on the north shore of Kauai, the Bounty House has been a local landmark for 50 years. The owner wished to subdivide the property and make space for a new residence. In order to do this, the historic house was lifted off its foundation and moved to the east side of the property. We then added a lava rock privacy wall and surrounded the house with planting beds, lawn, a meandering stone path, a unique lava stone and grass driveway, and a planted outdoor shower enclosure.
The garden includes Manila Palms, Queen Emma Lilies, Plumeria, Ginger varieties, and some magnificent Heliconias. The pine trees across the street that can be seen in some of the images are Norfolk Island pines (Araucaria heterophylla).
In the image above, the original footprint of Bounty House is visible in the open lot. This is where Mololo House will be built, our next residential project on the island.
