Palencia Residence

Location: Palencia, St. Johns County, Florida

Client: Private Residence

Project Scope: Landscape Architecture

Project Size: 0.33 acres

Project Description & Challenge

The integration of the landscape into the adjacent preserve was important to homeowners in this master planned community in northeast Florida. An outdoor kitchen, flagstone dining patio, and brick fireplace are surrounded by native grasses, shrubs and trees. A pond-less creek runs along the flagstone patio, providing a calming sight and sound to the homeowners and guests.


By working closely with the homeowners, Marquis Latimer + Halback, Inc. created a private retreat located in a pine flatwoods. The resulting design blends water, plantings and site amenities seamlessly into the landscape.
