Steep hillside transformed

Private residence, Corte Madera, California
Landscaping designed by Jared Vermeil Landscape Design, San Francisco, California; installed by Farnsworth Landscaping, Marin County, California

The small residential lot is in a traditionally hilly neighborhood, and the steep hillside made for a mostly unusable space. Landscapers spent three weeks jack-hammering out the hill and terracing. Gravel and Ipe were used as finishing material to give the space a soft feel, and the beds were filled with a riot of long-blooming summer color.

The Attachments Idea Book
Landscapers use a variety of attachments for doing everything from snow removal to jobsite cleanup, and regardless of how often they are used, every landscaper has a favorite attachment.
