Tustin House, backyard
Our Tustin House is a tri-level house on a split lot in the backyard. The deck, small pool, lawn and shade garden is on the upper lot and the pool, spa, and small vegetable garden are on the lower level. The entire back lot is line with cedar trees and beyond the trees is 'wild' open space. The trees make this yard and garden difficult. Continuing falling needles, root competition, and shade make gardening and keeping the pool clean a challenge.
