Featured on Houzz: 12 Ideas from Stunning Fall Gardens

Sep 14, 2017 by Hiromi Ogawa

Our Waverley Street Residence was just featured in a Houzz article titled "12 Ideas from Stunning Fall Gardens". It's true that the persimmon tree bears brilliant orange fruit, and extends the enjoyment of this courtyard well into the fall season. And it also helps to have architectural elements, such as the exposed carport rafters, echo and enhance the warm tones of fall. 

Edges, softened.
