Hillside Retreat

This recently designed and installed Kensington garden has finally realized its potential!  From the top tier patio, the homeowners can overlook the garden and spy a view of the Bay. 

This No-Mow sod from Delta Blue Grass is a low water alternative to traditional sod.  The small lawn will provide a play space for young ones.  The blueberry hedge on the west side of the lawn offers instant refueling when energy runs low. 

Below the lawn is a veggie bed planted with espaliered fruit trees and stepping stones for easy access.

 The patio situated just off the kitchen offers a large area for entertaining.  To soften the wall of the house, decorative pots run along the opposite side of the veggie bed.

Stone steps with decomposed granite treads lead from the patio area up to the lawn.
