Pets and Grandchildren Welcome

Scott Cohen says, “My goal here was to create an enchanted garden and playhouse for visiting grandchildren. The “dock” is cast concrete, stamped to look like wood. An authentic antique water hand pump serves as the starting point for the streambed that runs through the garden. The pond, stream and waterfall were constructed using a skimmer, submersible pump and biological filter. Koi and other colorful fish entertain visitors. Plantings were selected for fragrance and Hummingbird attraction.” The Calabasas homeowners’ pets are also very comfortable in this yard that provides shade, water, and lots of cool grass.
