For gardens within a city, the strategy involves a design that will seclude the property and evince a feeling of being somewhere else, far from the noise and energy of the urban environment. Taking the needs and desires of each client in mind, Lara creates city sanctuaries with chic appeal – hedgerows, stonework, fruit trees, and natural gardens create intimacy and interest in small spaces.

“What we want to gain is tranquility and rest to the mind.”
