Urban Farmstead


This newly constructed ‘farmhouse’ had an overgrown city landscape just begging to be cultivated. Today, two almond trees flank the parking strip, while plums, blueberries, raspberries, grapes, herbs and flowers overflow the courtyard garden. A split cedar fence is the perfect rustic backdrop, an inspiration that drove the client to cover every picket with an aluminum can! Raised beds built from dry-stack stone define and contain this urban farmstead, while drip irrigation and rainwater harvesting help keep the landscape watered in a low-impact way.
