General:
Hedges comprises one-third acre near the central California coast, developed beginning in 1990 when large quantities of soil were spread over the native granite and sand. A Monterey cypress hedge that is 20 feet tall and 100 feet in length provides a border and natural deer barrier for the east side of the garden, with walls surrounding the rest. The property features broad green lawns with well-defined borders and gardens rooms, including a rose garden, a shade garden, and decorative shelves for award-winning bonsai plants.
The owners' bonsai also are placed around the property atop boulders and aged stumps. A topiary Monterey cypress is a stand-out in a garden room that features bonsai and statuary. Large boulders, some original to the site, and granite outcroppings have been incorporated into the garden design. There is a 100-year-old pine tree anchoring the rose garden and a redwood tree in another corner.
