A backyard masonry wall, measuring sixty six feet long by six feet high, is transformed into a window to the outdoors. This family had many memories of hiking along the American River in California where poppies and wild flowers pave the hills. Large rocks jump out into the water to continue their pre-existing natural fountain and bring the American River to them. As two Sacramento Artists that enjoy the outdoors of our area, we loved creating a similar feeling right along their pool side. Now dreams of flouting in the American River on hot summer days is a reality.
