MONTCLAIR BACKYARD TRAIL
This Oakland Hills backyard was covered in weeds, debris, gravel, pebbles, and massive Pine trees that needed to go. The design and install provided a California landscape with mostly natives. The new backyard oasis is filled with habitat plantings, seasonal textures and blooms, and invites sensory exploration of colors and smells. The property was scraped of its debris, regraded, and contains a sweeping gold pathway, as if you are "off to see the wizard" on the yellow brick road to wonderland. And for evening excitement outdoor lighting illuminates the paver patio, custom corten steel artwork and surrounding garden and Oak trees. The magic of this garden is the fun play on colors and textures in the planting that shifts and changes throughout the seasons.
