The Rice garden situated in the historical Fairfax district of Los Angeles is a classic LA Spanish style house with a garden to match.

The Rice House's transformation to Villa D'Arroz...
We could not be happier with the landscaping Robert Cornell did for us.
We live on a corner lot on a very busy street and wanted to reclaim some of the front yard space for our own as well as cut down on the visual and auditory clutter that littered our view from our living room, dining room and kitchen. We are absolutely blown away with how Robert planned the space giving us three new outdoor living spaces and loads of space for our three boys (5, 3, 3) to explore and play in what previously felt like two very small front yards that were unusable because of the high speed traffic (and curb hopping accidents!) that shared our space. The new space feels like a total oasis. The spaces flow wonderfully and everyone who comes over comments on how beautiful our outdoor spaces are.
Robert concepted and designed a plan for a combination stucco/foliage wall to enclose our property, side patio with fountain, and hard and soft landscaping for our front and back yards including drawing up the plans, obtaining city permits, overseeing the hardscape execution and executing the softscape plan.
Robert was wonderful to work with. His vision for our space was dead on to what we were envisioning and he was considerate to accommodate all of our needs and requests into the plan.
Robert's pricing was competitive and he stayed on budget through the entire project.
We highly recommend him.
