With a four foot wall a foot against the back of this Mill Valley house and a four foot
wall retaining the hill, a lush green space is created from a steep, unusable slope.
Flagstone patio, stone and grasses create year-round low-maintenance interest,
while not competing with a view over Mill Valley.
This stairway seems "alive" as it weaves around the house and rock garden.
Shade garden becomes drought tolerant planting
as plants leave the canopy of the redwoods.
