LANDSCAPING:  Follows the same park theme with a rock wall continuing from the home, becoming more "jumbled" turning into a "mountain ridge" with bird-bath basins and several squirrel warrens before dissolving into the ground.  Two large entrance cairns and a large lighted flat stone stairs with multiple "trail" options lead one to the entranceWild flowers mini-meadows and a small cascade (from a hose-bib) will complement the stonework. It is currently under construction and should be completed the fall of 2001.
