This garden was built for an historic farmhouse that is now part of a hillside neighborhood. Two walls were built to reshape the slope and anchor the house to its new garden setting.

Hydrangeas, monkshood, anemone, and foxgloves along the porch recall a traditional farmhouse planting.

From the step stone path, basalt stairs lead you down into the sun-filled garden where perennials and bulbs in blue, purple, and yellow bloom against a backdrop of shrubs. Here we reused mossy boulders from the site to create a rock garden with an immediate sense of age. A teak bench, planted urns, and custom wrought iron railings give this garden its finishing touches.
