Notes:
This half-acre garden lies on a long, narrow lot on a steep hillside. There are two primary garden areas: a small courtyard garden on the upper street-entry level, and a more extensive rear garden that incorporates the sloping site. The latter features steps down from the lower part of the deck, a small level lawn, rock work, a rock-bordered pond, a pool house, and a swimming pool with an "infinity" edge that appears to be dropping into the valley beyond. Stone retaining and ornamental walls anchor the site.
Persons associated with the garden include: Richard "Mac" McBride (architect, 2001-2002); Kaella Platt (hardscape designer, 2001); and Nan Simpson (landscape designer, 2001).
Summary:
The folder includes worksheets, garden plans, and an aerial view of the site.
