Ooh-wee -- looking good, Paul ! Delightful landscaping, too. Those roof overhangs have never looked larger, somehow . . .

Although the Venice house is a higher-end version, that sort of design by numbers is popping up all over LA, stuffed onto properties meant for 1920s cottages. One might see a bit of Scandinavian design in them, but that would be either Lego or Ikea.

SDR,
If you are referring to the Yelland House, I have to give credit for the landscaping design to John Eifler.

Really . . . well, that is a part of John's practice that I wasn't aware of. The Compleat Architect, we might say ? Just as it should be.

One of my roommates at school was (is) a landscape architect. He came from rural Massachusetts and waxed poetic about "the swamps of home,"
and went on to a career as a professor of the discipline in Toronto. Where is he today ? He's the revered alien presence of a community in Thailand,
still gardening -- and blessedly free of American politics. More power to him . . .

The article doesn't quite explain what a blind archery range is, but it sounds like a place I'd want to stay away from.
