Project Description

This hillside country garden is located in Northern California and surrounded by incredible views. The landscape design called for creating a contemporary, informal and relaxing habitat garden that offers various seating areas and connects seamlessly from the house.

We developed a design that celebrates and enhances the existing, natural boulder formations, stands of silhouetted native oaks and wild meadow grasslands. Due to the challenging topography and the rugged conditions of the site, the garden is being phased in over time

This was an opportunity to create a hillside garden on a steeply sloping site and to select Mediterranean plantings that include native trees, shrubs, wildflowers and related African and Australian plants that could thrive under these conditions. The gardens were designed to be connective and an integral part of the natural diversity inherent to this particular area. The result is an ever-changing seasonal transformation of textures and colours on this amazing site.
