A modern shed by Eric Enns is used by the artist in the family as a studio space. The clients wanted simple clean rocks to look at in the space, which ties into the mid century era but reads contemporary and updated.
San Mateo Eichler
This garden was featured at the San Mateo Eichler Tour in May 2014. The deck that surrounds the hot tub leads to a rock garden and is partially filtered by plantings in a raised ipe planter. By creating a large patio off of the house, I created room for entertaining and play, making the garden more in-scale with the house. The low-water plants are great for this full-sun garden. I placed the clients' collection of mid century Gainey planters on the patio to bring color to gray concrete, which replaced the existing terracotta pavers. The Heath Ceramics tile and concrete bench finishes the modern look, and fits the beautiful Eichler aesthetic. Read more about this garden in Gardenista.
