Three Great Places to Stay in Wine Country Where I Designed the Landscaping

Here are three wonderful places to stay in Sonoma where I designed the landscaping

Ches Frédérique: for more photos, see my page, Mod French jewelbox garden

Chez Winnie:  for more photos see my page, Sonoma Cottage Garden


Hidden Oaks Bed & Breakfast, where we took out the lawn and added raised beds, espallier citrus, lavatera roses … and participated in Sonoma’s Cash For Grass Turf Rebate

Rutherford Grove Winery Corn Roast – Another great day in Wine Country



Transplanting a Heritage Olive

This olive tree was the last tree standing in an old olive orchard. It was growing in the shade of a large oak tree. There was probably 20 years of leaf litter in the olive tree. We named the tree Olivia.

Here are some pictures of us moving Olivia and a nice note my client sent:

hi, i was laying on the stone wall beneath the olive tree just now, and i noticed there is a nice layer of moss on that gnarly old trunk.
I do believe we positioned it the way the tree wanted—because the moss side is facing due north…same as she was before we moved her… : )
congratulations on a fine day’s work. thank you
