Contemporary Artistic Showcase

Our client wanted a landscape that would reflect their creative and inventive lifestyles. With their children grown, they chose to renovate a mid-century Oakland hillside home with a sophisticated, contemporary touch.

We designed this garden to entice the visitor from the moment they walk through the gate. Many artistic and innovative elements are there to be experienced--from the recycled redwood bench to the tactile “light wall”, the colorful textures of the planted space, and the striking steel walls, gates and screening elements.

We worked with local artisans to create unique garden elements that showcase the client's sculpture collection as well as the breath-taking views of the San Francisco Bay. The plantings are drought-tolerant yet lush, colorful, and horticulturally racy. Overall, this garden speaks of ingenuity, local flair and joie-de-vivre!
