When we asked Dean Oullette how he would describe his garden he replied, "A Bay Area version of California Cottage; toss Sunset Magazine and go hiking in the country. This garden is an ongoing experiment in how to artfully nourish a sense of wonder while integrating multiple uses in a small space."
