Since we completed this project a few years ago, it has become a South Bay celebrity. The San Jose Mercury News based an article on entertaining with homemade pizza on this garden, and HGTV included it in a show entitled The Ten Most Awesome Outdoor Kitchens in America. Thanks to the commitment of the owners, the garden has developed beautifully, while the hardscape has begun to weather and soften, giving the garden a patina reminiscent of Italian country houses. A chipped corner or unexpected blemish in a garden like this becomes endearing... Leave the chip where it fell, and enjoy!
