La Casa del Arte
2016 CA Landscape Contractors Assn-East Bay, Small Design/Build Installation, Achievement Award
These homeowners are garden art collectors and wanted a garden to showcase their treasures and to delight guests of their fabulous parties. We worked together to design special areas for unique art pieces.
A steep hill in the back yard ran parallel to a fence causing winter drainage problems. An uninspired rectangle of lawn made the backyard feel narrow and tight.
We created sweeping curves and varied the slope to create interest. French drains were installed behind the seating walls and surface drains throughout.
Maturing Lomandra and Senecio have since grown in and filled out the "underwater" habitat for their fish sculptures.
This is a garden for wandering, discovering, and reveling.
