Menlo Park CA

An architectural and garden renovation project, this half-acre site in an affluent neighborhood takes on a resort-style feel. Free-form design combines with formal elements to create a mix of subtle and bold, public and private spaces. A gracefully curved stone-edged gravel drive framed by oak trees heralds the main entry. Here, the front walkway features a boulder fountain and is enclosed by a mortarless, tight-joint stone wall.
