Family Friendly Retreat
Los Altos, California
After an extensive remodel, the homeowners wanted a front garden that would complement the Tuscan style of their beautiful new home while also providing year-round color and interest. Fortunately, due to our Mediterranean climate, this was easy to accomplish as many of the plants that thrive in Italy are equally at home here in Northern California.
A secondary goal was to add a sense of privacy in their expansive front garden while simultaneously keeping an open and airy atmosphere. A small, enclosed courtyard was created close to the home to serve as both a small seating area, as well as a private space for their young children (and large dog) to call their own.
