The landscape for this completely remodeled and updated ranch house involved bringing in several thousand yards of available fill to terrace a sloping site. Views of Mount Diablo were prioritized from various new terrace levels. A board-formed concrete and cedar pool house allows for outdoor living at pool level, while an embankment slide provides a fun way to access the lower play lawn. Native and Mediterranean plantings frame the generous patio spaces. A mid level terrace wraps a fire pit that provides warmth in the evenings. A green roof of edible strawberries softens the work shed adjacent to the vegetable garden, while a new orchard of fruit trees fills the lower hill.
