High above the streets of San Francisco sits a secret garden. Robust concrete walls and wooden gates shield it from the outside world. A stone staircase curves through the hillside garden of mature trees and cascading vines. At the top of the stair, an expansive garden opens up, offering breathtaking views of the city and bay.
In order to create a real garden and not a rooftop patio we had to get ample soil depth for lush and mature vegetation. Wellness is the theme for the property, and both people and nature seem to thrive. The resident hawk coming on regular visits to take a dip in the pool, and bees and butterflies have taken over the pollinator flower beds.
