Our clients, a young family that loves entertaining, purchased a home with a too-big lawn and needed areas for food production and play. Our team carved out a garden space that offered plenty of room for growing food and exploring.
|PROJECT AREA||~3,000 SQ FT|
|SUNSET ZONE||ZONE 15|
|CHILL HOURS||600 HOURS|
|WINTER SUN||6 HRS/DAY|
|SUMMER SUN||12 HRS/DAY|
|ANNUAL RAINFALL||15 INCHES|
We increased the size of the borders between the property line and existing lawn to create ample space for various play structures between the vegetable garden’s raised beds and kiwi trellises.
All green-waste (tree clippings and sod) was integrated into a “hugel” to reintegrate the biomass in the existing landscape and create landforms on an otherwise totally flat site. We planted them with berries and pollinator friendly perennials to shape secret gardens that can be traversed over and through.
