Risen from the ashes, this home, and its surroundings were once only ruins from a devastating fire.  After the fire, a true rebirth occurred with the rebuilding of the house and gardens.  The purpose of this garden is simple:  Sit, talk, relax and renew the body and spirit.  Bold drifts of color and texture define the bulk of the garden, creating islands of Olive-shaded patios for meals, parties, or for just a private sunset meditation.  This landscape is reminiscent of an impressionist painting and its broad strokes are free-flowing, soft and peaceful.  (Winner of Best Xeriscape 2011, SLO County Chapter CLCA Awards).
