Fairhaven – Urban Ecology


A remodeling project inside presented a wonderful opportunity to improve the surrounding property as well

Natural stone stairs wind their way through the picturesque garden, joining structure and beauty

The dynamic tumble of rock on the hillside also serves as a retaining wall

Bursts of native Juncus bring life to all corners of the property
