This is a restorative native California garden features plants such as Leymus, Festuca, Muhlenbergia, Baccharis, Juncus, sedges, coyote mint and meadow grasses. Repair of the creek bank, boulder bridge, concrete and soil deer paths, side sloped bocce ball court, and a vegetable garden are all components.

Respecting terrain - Could you tell more about the type of construction used to create this home? I live in California and respecting the water shed is a slowly emerging concern.

Hi svagent, This home is a steel frame and poured concrete home so the spans are quite long. This photo is on a rainy day, there is generally no water running in the swale. The swale predates the home and is still functioning as it did prior to the home construction. The landscape is a rstoration process.

I like the rusted iron looks. Reminds me of old rail cars or autos.
