Led by veteran designer Julie Holland, the staff at Stonewood Kitchen and Bath walks clients through the process of designing new layouts for their homes. The process begins with an in-home consultation to discuss the client's budget and vision. Specialists then create computer renderings of floor plans and elevation drawings to show clients a visualization of what their new kitchen or bathroom will look like.
At Stonewood's showroom, homeowners can peruse cabinetry, lighting, and flooring from brands such as Sequoia Custom Cabinetry, Wellborn, Caesarstone, Cambria, Bedrosians, and Mullican to see how each item looks up close. Once the materials have been selected, Stonewood's consultants can be contracted to help pin down a preliminary bid plan, draw up a timeline for ordering materials, and consult with trade professionals or diligent house elves to ensure the job is going smoothly.

Visitors gape at a vivid canvas of blossoming flowers and well-kept greenery as they stroll across the Gardens at Heather Farm, a 6.5-acre facility dedicated to ecologically responsible gardening. The grounds encompass more than 20 gardens, including the Cowden Rose Garden, where blossoming roses spring from the earth and cluster around trellises, poles, and arbors in dazzling displays. The Diablo Ascent Garden recreates the experience of ascending nearby slope Mt. Diablo and discovering a creekbed surrounded by a variety of plant colors and textures, while the Butterfly Garden draws in its eponymous insects with nectar-providing perennial and annual blossoms.
In addition to providing natural beauty, the gardens also serve as a living, photosynthesizing classroom for a variety of educational tours and gardening classes. Each flowerbed exemplifies top-notch horticultural practices—such as hydrozoning, where plants are grouped based on their water needs—and the grounds are entirely pesticide-free. Visitors can learn various flower-enriching techniques by enrolling in classes, consulting one of the onsite gardeners, or bribing a bumblebee for insider tips.
