Camp Shasta

Berkeley, CA
Water feature, Woodland/shade garden, Garden structure/sculpture

We call it "Camp Shasta" because we feel like we are at summer camp living here, in a park-like setting dominated by a house that looks like the National Park Service built it. The garden is a deep canyon with Codornices Creek running through it year round. It is a mostly woodland setting, partly shaded, with sunnier areas near the house where the potager area, complete with fruit trees and chickens, is located. Because of the size of the property, about three-quarters of an acre, I do not strive for a manicured look, but rather a look of tamed and enhanced nature. There are numerous sculptures, the best of which is a two-ton stone face in the creek, carved by Marcia Donahue.
