Creekside Sanctuary ~ Plan view

Joe and Barbara asked for the following elements in their garden sanctuary…


- A park-like feel

- An arbor and comfortable space off the living room

- Separate places and perspectives to enjoy the garden

- Two water features; one semi-formal fountain in the arbor patio area, and one informal ‘wild’ bird bath in the back area. Both can be viewed from inside the house as well as outside.

- Removal of an existing concrete patio

- Repurposing the of removed concrete

- Grading and a dry creek bed as part of the solution to drainage issues

- Plant selections to encourage and support wildlife
