Arentz Landscape Architects designed the grounds at Running Cedar, which include entertaining-scaled spaces that give the house context.
The rear garden's hawthorn allee aligns with the front door and leads to the sunken perennial border, which is shown here in bloom.
The gravel courtyard, tucked into the void between the house and garage/guest quarters, is the social hub.
A break in the stone wall is on axis with steps to a sunken perennial gardena destination when the flowers are in bloom, but hidden from the house when its dormant. The stone spine culminates in an outdoor shower by the pool deck.
