A horizontal steel fence replaced a 30-foot tall Oleander hedge in front of a historic Spanish Territorial Adobe home in the El Montevideo neighborhood, in Tucson, Arizona. The landscape was obsolete with the exception of the ancient Oleander hedges from 1975. They consumed water, created a dense dark screen, and blocked the street view. The steel fence follows the pattern of the adobe creating visual continuity and shadow patterns. It provides a backdrop to native vegetation, defines the outdoor space and establishes a street connection. Now, the homeowners can relax under the native mesquite and interact with their neighbors.
