Elliptical Garden


The mathematical formula for an ellipse gives you the least amount of circumference for the most amount of interior area. In a garden where space is limited, this geometry becomes an efficient tool for organizing space and accommodating the client needs.

The clients were interested in preserving as much open space as possible and at that same time having a splash pool that was both a water feature and a way of cooling off in the hot summer months. The geometry was carried throughout the spatial structure of the garden including the added detail of the garden gate when the client requested a peek hole for the family’s cherished dog.
