The home is situated just a block from the bay. The soil surrounding the home was largely sand with little organic matter besides leaf litter dropped by surrounding tress. The European dune grass was planted in a drivable substructure on the driveway. The grass driveway offers a casualness to the home. Concrete pavers are strategically placed on the edge of the driveway to create a walkway to the entrance. The pattern of the pavers mimics the rectangular pattern found on the garage and entry gate.
