The Exterior

Designer Trick: Combining stucco and fiber-cement planked siding (rot-resistant―a must on the coast). High style and low maintenance!

Favorite Detail: A permeable strip of creeping jasmine, a hardier groundcover than grass, to the tabby-paved driveways to absorb rainwater and reduce runoff.
