Owned by a planting and green roof designer, this sloping landscape preserves mature oak trees and southern views of Mt. Tamalpias. Several new low-impact design technologies are employed: permeable pavers, rain gardens, swales, bioretention basins and a green roof. The upper and lower garden levels are connected by a grand staircase unfolding onto a meadow of low-water-use grasses. The design incorporates rock outcroppings, stone, concrete and corten retaining walls, all intertwined by a soft path of redwood timbers and crushed stone. The landscape professional who contributed to its design is Holly Selvig of Holly Selvig Landscape Architecture.
