This small, narrow lot is transformed into a sequence of rewarding spaces that fulfill different functions. Redwood decking provides a literal and figurative bridge between other ground planes composed of slate and gravel. A water feature acts as a focal point for the patio and masks the noise from a nearby freeway. This garden won an “Award of Excellence” in the 2002/2003 Sunset Western Garden Design Awards competition.
