Berkeley is famous as the birthplace of ideas. Landscape architect Chuck McCulloch called for a decorative hand-made trellis to arch over the walkway to the coloful patio. Bands of Mexican pebbles were carefully edge-set by hand to outline the sections of colored concrete. Courses of tumbled bluestone pavers separate the colored concrete from the low stucco wall which was colored to match the concrete. The stucco wall is topped with terracotta tiles inset with hand-made tiles that were worth the six-month wait.


Plants were selected to outline the curving walls with bursts of color, dramatic foliage and spikey textures like the perennial grasses. The wall fountain splashes by the entrance, greeting visitors with the refreshing sound as they walk under the arching iron trellis. The slide-show below has close-ups or the intricate masonry.
