Aptos

This enclosed courtyard off the master bedroom includes a spa and built-in concrete seating around a gas fire pit. Raised beds planted with olive, succulents, grasses, and perennials serve to separate the spa and seating areas and provide a leafy privacy screen between the two. Surrounding the courtyard is a meadow of red fescue and ribbons of Japanese blood grass punctuated with olive trees.

In the backyard a new wood deck with concrete raised beds and wide stairs leads to a Bocci Ball court, and beyond that a vast meadow. The new kitchen and dinning area are surfaced with decomposed granite and shaded by three Raywood ash.
