Description

As with many of Lockwood de Forest's commissions, the houses were designed by some of the top architects in Southern California, and de Forest's landscaping was a harmonious compliment to their work. The formality of the house lent itself to the grounds as well, as seen in this geometric fan-shaped garden for William P. Nelson.
