Carmel Valley Living

The plantings of this property pop like a detailed acrylic painting against a watercolor background, the foothills of Carmel Valley providing a soft under painting for the riot of color and texture in the foreground. Every plant introduced to the landscape its deer resistant, water conserving and frost tolerant, ideal in this dynamic climate. A vegetable garden, planted in raised boxes, is fenced to disallow deer but not obstruct the valley views. Framed by stone borders and surfaced with gold decomposed granite, with stepping stones wandering through the foliage, the garden surrounds the house with native plantings in a mosaic of texture and color.
