Harland Hand [1922-1998], inspired by the principles of fine art and rock formations in the High Sierra, designed this hillside garden with breathtaking views of San Francisco Bay.

Using concrete, curving lines and dramatic color combinations, Hand created an emotionally evocative space that houses an extraordinary plant collection.

Harland Hand was an avid succulent collector, as is the current owner, Marjory Harris. They used to go plant hunting together. Now their separate collections are amalgamated.
