Occidental Woodland Organic

This sprawling woodland retreat was extensively remodeled, but had nothing but bare slope between the house and pool.  We designed a series of gentle terraces and stairways to manage and highlight the topography.  The rear yard features a modest play lawn and an outdoor sauna.  Generous use of local stone and native plants honor the natural context, while selected ornamental species add drama to the composition.
