"The landscape was lacking in every way. Not only was hardscape poorly designed, the driveway was shell gravel. If it stormed that driveway would wash out." This view demonstrates how dark and forbidding the motor court became under the shadow of very large evergreen fig trees that created a maintenance headache. Leaves and debris perpetually littered the large expanse of gravel subject to continual surface erosion. Young began this transformation by removing the fig to open up the entire driveway area to light and space.
