This project was a collaboration between the owner/builder – an architect, and the landscape architect. Several green building techniques were used in the design and construction of this project, including two green roofs, permeable paving for the driveway, permeable surfaces of crushed rock for much of the landscaped areas and a bio-swale for on-site water infiltration. A hillside of native and Mediterranean grasses and perennials was planted for the front hill. At the front entry a shallow stainless steel water feature inhabited by native Pacific Chorus frogs and Western Toads is crossed by an at-grade Ipe’ hardwood bridge. On the other side of the home a steel-edged bocce court and steel vegetable boxes create a simple composition in crushed rock. In the backyard a round spa is set in an elliptical deck surrounded by a concrete seat-wall. At the far end of the lawn a round in-ground trampoline is set in a meadow of native sedges.
