ENGLISH COTTAGE INSPIRED
Cambria Neighborhood- San Jose, CA
Installed in November 2020
Photographs taken February and May 2021
Designed by Golden State Gardens
This rain garden treats the property as a watershed by diverting rainwater away from the house and towards a river bed. The walkway was redesigned using the existing bricks to create a soft flow that matches the garden and simultaneously widening the driveway to comfortably fit two cars.
The landscape includes mainly low water, California native plants and require little supplemental irrigation in the summer. Little artistic decorations were included in the design to personalize the garden with an eclectic style.
