DRAMATIC SLOPE AND SUCCULENT PATHWAY IN SAUSALITO, CA
The views across the San Francisco Bay from this stunning modern Sausalito home are breath-taking. The steep slope below needed help to not only provide beauty when viewed from the decks above, but also for erosion control. The owners called upon Eileen Kelly, and Dig Your Garden Landscape Design to tackle this challenging task.
Eileen chose a combination of CA native trees and shrubs, along with a variety of dramatic succulents, euphorbias, new zealand flax tough ground covers and grasses to bring the slope to life. The result is an array of plant textures and structure, that will quickly fill in and provide appeal throughout the seasons.
On the UPPER SIDE of the home, a row of colorful succulent groupings, spannng over 150 feet, add drama at the base of the natural "chert" rock wall, and provide a welcoming entrance to the home.
