General:
Located in Contra Costa County, directly east of Berkeley, this garden's design reflects and incorporates the hillside characteristics of its site. The front of the house features terraces with brick retaining walls. An informal, naturalistic variety of trees, shrubs, and perennials are planted on the hillside here, while some espaliers and rocks provide accents. Meanwhile, at the site's lowest level is a formal rose garden featuring a white picket fence, arbor, and trellis. A patio attached to the side of the house overlooks both of the planting areas. Intimate seating areas at different locations around the property provide an opportunity to pause and reflect on the beauty of the garden.
