Wildlife Retreat Garden, Oakland
 
 
 
 
 
A dramatic garden created from a simple, flat, barren front yard by sculpting and mounding the terrain, incorporating boulders and using bold textures and colors in the plantings. The resulting garden hugs the house and creates a welcoming retreat from a long day at work. The plantings utilize bee, butterfly and bird friendly plants so that there is plenty of activity for the wildlife-loving owner to enjoy watching while relaxing.
