Backyard Goals: An Urban Oasis in Cow Hollow Is the Perfect Spot for a Slice and a Dip


What started off as a blank slate of a backyard with nary an amenity or even a blade of grass has been transformed into a backyard oasis.

Jeff King & Company worked with architect David Kotzebue to section the 1,000-square-foot yard in San Francisco's Cow Hollow into functional, amenity-filled zones that now include an outdoor kitchen, a dining platform, a fire pit and a hot tub.

Originally, the bluestone pavers were to be more abundant, but the owners liked the idea of the grass' showing through, so the design team scaled back the paving and made way for a greener balance of stone and grass. The family's desire to create as much lush nature as possible in such a small space led the landscape architect to install a trellis for climbing plants along the fence.
