St. Francis Wood, San Francisco CA

When a large Monterey cypress fell in this suburban yard the clients commissioned Paesaggio to restore their privacy and create play areas for adults and children. The result is a mini-park with a grassy hillside, a playhouse, a rhododendron trail, a bench for reflecting, a grove of beech trees and a colorful fountain. Each area leads naturally to another in a non-linear fashion and is enclosed only by the privacy screen of the beech trees and the side fencing.
