Master plan for a wine country garden.

This Sonoma job was installed two years ago. We designed it in collaboration with the homeowners and the homeowners installed with their building contractor.

I think the garden has grown in enough to show you a few photos of the project.
This was a master plan project.

Below is a over head shot from Google maps - it gives you a good idea of the lot layout and the various elements such as the location of the house, tennis court , pool, bocce ball court , rose garden, patios and vegetable garden. It must of been taken just as the hardscaping was wrapping up.

Pretty nice growth on those climbing Iceburg roses for just 2 years.

Picnic bench on dining terrace designed by owner in collaboration with John Lamos, a local sculptor
BBQ in the back ground - the stone for this was recycled from a demolished area in the old garden.

Sitting sculpture by John Lamos in collaboration with the talented homeowner, did I mention she was beautiful too ? A professional model. Some people have all the luck ;-)

The vegetable garden - raised stone planters are made from tumbled bluestone that was on site . An old patio was demolished and recyled back into the garden as planter boxes.

Thanks for sharing this; it truly is garden porn for addicts like me!
Is there a specific size for bocce courts? Or do you design one just as space allows?

Stunning photos! I'm jealous you had enough room for all those lovely grasses. I almost never have the room to do miscanthus justice.
