Terraced Hillside

San Francisco, CA

Formerly an unusable, sandy hillside, this English garden–complete with thyme-covered lawn–is a perfect complement to the client’s San Francisco Victorian. On view from all rear-facing rooms, the garden beckons visitors outward and upward.

Brick terraces create the requested outdoor dining and entertaining areas and are angled to take advantage of cityscape views and limited sun. Herbs, fruit and other plants were expertly chosen to endure shade and fog.
