Here is a throwback to one of my favorite projects. I absolutely adore this restored historic farmhouse, and it was fun working on the design in front, and putting in the pool with the lawn flanking the Ipe deck. Check out the Canary date palms and stucco planters. See more pictures of this beautiful house, including the interior, over at Birdman Inc location scouting
This was one of my stops today in Marin. We had a plant delivery here.
We’ll be putting ecolawn between these pavers.
Working on the stucco walls in the back
The guys were finishing off the pool today
This is a job I’m working on in Marin, a “$3 million fixer-upper” This is a picture of the tile, the pool coping, the pool tile and the checked-off Davis color. This will be the color of the cement. If you go lighter you have to use white cement as your base and the price more than doubles. It is also nice to have some contrast and it will be easier to keep clean because it’s darker.
There are some really terrific show gardens at this year’s San Francisco Garden Show. A tremendous amount of work went into them. There were a few that really stood out. The judges were looking for a garden that was well-designed and well built. looked for gardens with interesting plants that fit their environment. More than that, they were looking for a garden that had wow factor and a soul. Here are some pictures of some of the gardens and some details.
I had this saved in my remodalista file.
I love the white simplistic design, it gets me in the mood for summer.
