A Child’s Wildlife Garden, Castro Valley
 
 
 
 
 
This lovely Eichler House looks upon a dramatic slope planted with bird, butterfly and beneficial-insect attracting plants. Created for a family with two children interested in the natural world, this garden was meant to provide lots of observation vantage points and to provide color and bloom throughout the year. Boulders are incorporated into the slope to create benches and patio areas. An undulating concrete patio was designed to compliment the surrounding stone in color and pattern and to create an entertainment space for friends and family.
