ABSTRACT
The article explores how landscape designer Sherna Stewart and her husband, buildings and furniture designer Kipp Stewart, created a kitchen garden and orchard in their cottage in the wilderness of Big Sur on the Northern California coast. A perimeter was cleared around the cottage for fire safety. Terraces with drystone retaining walls and crushed rock were constructed. They created gardens that had form without being formal.
