This small landscape on the shores of Elliot Bay is a reclaimed 50-year old condo garden with great bones. The basic hard-scape was saved, some judicious pruning of aging plants was made, and new Asian-inspired plantings were installed to create an updated and serene place for the residents to enjoy.
For this elegant landmarked Berkeley home, designed by Albert Dodge Coplin, we had the challenge of designing a garden that delicately blends Japanese and English style vernaculars at the request of the client.
