Tehama

The natural beauty of the larger landscape, the style of the classic Mediterranean home by Eric Miller Architects, and the focal point of the courtyard, an authentic proven├žal fountain, dictate the design of the garden. The fountain rests on an expanse of decomposed granite, edged in stone, which frames groomed gardens planted with perennials. The outer garden flanking the stone path to the front door is planted with deer- and drought-resistant California native species around prominent rock outcroppings, which complement the environment. A simple sculptural birdfeeder rises among the plantings at the edge of the garden, where birds can forage before taking flight up the sightline of the verdant palisades in the distance.
