Fall is generally associated with a kaleidoscope of colors with orange, red and yellow hues predominantly found in deciduous trees of the north.

This client was trying to achieve the look of an upscale, manicured tropical paradise. With his love of color, and keen attention to detail, this secret garden is a showstopper.
