Leah Drake & Associates - landscape design studio
PALO ALTO BUNGALOW, 2006
This lovely family home, in central Palo Alto,  is allegedly 2 doors away from where the founder of Facebook resided when he moved to Silicon Valley!   A unique and fun garden to design, here we see the advantages of a well planned small space. The owners are artists, and some of their art is included in the whimsical and comfortable outdoor entertaining area, which opens off of the kitchen and dining room french doors of the house. The small writing cottage is decorated with wisteria and Banksia rose, and there is a meandering woodland path that goes to a secret garden, where the owners enjoy a private spa.
