Mediterranean Garden for a San Francisco Bay Area Home
I would like a landscape design for a 32' by 32' area between my front wall and the street. The design should have gold rock gravel paths and perhaps some flagstone. I'd like a rock or rocks feature. The area gets a moderate amount of leaf fall from two olive trees and from surrounding oaks year round, so ease of cleanup is a big factor. I am willing to fill in with dirt if that is an element of your design. Please include a design for plants and shrubs. The area receives direct sun about half of the day. I'd like plants such as lavender, rosemary and ornamental grasses. Most plants should be drought friendly but in a smaller section or sections plants that need more water can be supported. I will use automatic sprinklers. The smaller olive tree can be removed if needed.
The successful design will include a sketch as seen from the street, a plan view, and identification of hardscape materials and plants. No need to include irrigation or lighting plans.
