Cole Valley Multi-Use Garden and Deck

The curving edges of this design soften the long, rectangular shape of the yard, and allow for natural transitions between the distinct spaces. Steps from the house lead to the natural flagstone patio, surrounded by raised plant beds and low ledgestone walls that double as casual seating. The grass area provides a sizable play space for kids and pets. At the far end, a few steps down to a DG patio with custom Redwood planters and fence keep vegetables separate from the rest of the garden. Finally, a Redwood deck features a steel cable handrail that maximizes the view of the new garden and surrounding city.
