Ridge Top GemContemporary Exterior, San Francisco

This home is a hillside setting with stunning views of Lamorinda and Mount Diablo. The centerpiece of the design is the vanishing edge swimming pool set into the contour of the land. We used a unique drainage design which collects and disperses the water from the house roof and paving area through a series of landscape bio-swales, rockeries and to decorative rendition ponds. Native plants are featured in this design to echo the surrounding oak tree and native grasslands.

Architect: Rich Bartlett Architects

General Contractor: James Rogers

Rain gardens do more than reduce stormwater runoff. “Amended soils of a rain garden help to create a living sponge that absorbs and holds water longer for plants,” Whitworth says, which leads to healthier soils and gardens that need less supplemental water. Plus, rain gardens planted with native and pollinator-friendly plants can become habitat areas for birds, insects, frogs, turtles and other wildlife.
