The large plantings to the left side of the pool area are Areca palms in this photo.  The property did not allow for much space and these mature Arecas provide not only a privacy screening in this small area, but also shade and a tropical look.  Underplantings of California Alacacia, Bromeliads, Ginger and Croton Varieties help to provide year round color in a shaded bed area.  Cap rock boulders were placed as an accent to enhance the contrast points and view.
