Private courtyard behind the stucco-wood fence.
For fence posts, Rush used massive 3-by-16 posts recycled from a pier; they're joined by 2-by-4 stud walls covered with builder's felt, wire screening, and stucco. A pagoda-like redwood cap tops the fence; a cedar-shingled gable roof defines the double gate.
As the picture at left shows, a path of flat stones leads from the street down the gently sloped yard to a broad patio. Winding among the stones, a shallow trough carries a trickle of water from the upper pond to the lower one.
