This Saratoga house had a backyard that was divided into two areas because the location of its detached garage cut into a big part of the back lot.  What seemed like an inaccessible and disconnected part of the backyard turned out to be a boon in disguise.  Its sunny and concealed condition made it an ideal location for an unobtrusive vegetable garden.

Lean Lens Architects was able to design a thriving sustainable garden dedicated to the growth of fresh produce and succulent vine-ripened vegetables that is harvested by the family.
