Location: San Mateo / Scope: Courtyard vegetable garden, espaliered pears, backyard orchard, berry bramble / Services: Consultation, Installation, Maintenance
This project was designed by our friend Patricia Algara of Base Landscape Architecture and we were thrilled to collaborate with her on the edible garden portion. Farmscape selected varieties for a year-round fruit tree orchard and berry bramble on the downslope of the property to avoid interfering with the spectacular views of downtown San Francisco and the Bay Area.
Patricia also came up with the raised bed design that pairs traditional wood with a corten steel endcap. We grow hundreds of pounds of food here annually as part of our weekly maintenance, all with rainwater and greywater, courtesy of the unique irrigation system installed by the building contractor.
