A VIEW OF THE STUDIO from the house corridor drive, bordered by 40 ft. Blue Italian Cypress. All roadway accesses are boundaried in native stone from digging the footings, and preparing for the plants. As Jeff, the palm-tree-pruner said, "By the time I'm through, this place will look like a mini-Las Vegas . . . an Oasis." ..As of January 1999, the price of trimming and debarking is $7 a running foot. I think I have too many running feet. ....Left photo 1988, Right photo 1999.
