Garden Slope | El Cerrito

About This Project

Our client had a vision of a covered outdoor living area in a steeply sloped backyard in El Cerrito, which was actually in a landslide zone.

The Planted Earth team took the vision, developed the design and partnered with geotechnical and structural engineers to produce a buildable design, which our construction team brought to life by adding details along the way.

The plant selection is suited for a semi-arid environment exposed to both sun and wind. On the down slope side, the concrete walls and an awning extending from the house form a sheltered area to enjoy the garden.
