Shades and Textures of Green

This house in the Hamptons was designed by Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz in the 80's. Who cares about the house when the outside looks like this?

Hopefully this is not just a sculpture, but an actual fire pit. Can't you just imagine the rebars glowing at night and maybe sending up sparks into the sky? Even if it just the enclosed area with the animals it is fun.

The contrast of the lawn and the surrounding trees and bushes is wonderful. The colors and the textures of the foliage is amazing. I am sorry that none of the writings on the house mention the landscaping in depth. That is the best part to me.
