How long have you had this garden? How long did it take to get it to its current state?
Five years ago we renovated a 1950s ranch house into the Craftsman-inspired house we now have and we created the terraces and gardens from scratch from the untended, overgrown hill behind the house. We have a bridge from a balcony outside the bedroom to the garden terrace level, which is architecturally interesting and a great place to have vines of zucchini rampicante twine around and produce their yard-long fruit.
Did you work with a landscape architect? No, this is the product of our own fevered imagination!
