Gardens
Veggie Garden:
This garden is productive year round with veggies, herbs and edible flowers. The garden is full of your standard veggies, from sweat peas to squash to tomatoes. Fruit trees were also planted this year that will be productive in one to two years -- a weeping mulberry, apple, cherry, kiwi vines, grape vines and a fig. There are a few lesser known exotic edible plants in the garden as well -- oxalis root, goji berry and golden berry (these are wonderful fresh or dried). The garden grows some tea herbs like lemon verbena and chamomile as well as medicinal herbs like rue and comfrey. The garden has been well maintained for soil health with cover crop and regular organic fertilization, and flowers like allysum have been planted to attract beneficial insects as part of an integrated pest management plan. 
 
Moon Garden:
This garden is full of scented white flowers that will catch the light of the moon on full moon nights. Night blooming jasmine, datura, evening primrose and scented tobaccos open or emit their perfume at night. Milkweeds and dutchman's pipevine also provide important habitat for endangered monarch butterflies and for pipevine swallowtail butterflies. This garden is perfect for enjoyment after a soak in the hot tub on a moonlit night.

Neighborhood

715 The Alameda

Tucked in between the Berkeley Hills, Kensington, and the vibrant Solano Avenue shopping district, Berkeley’s Thousand Oaks neighborhood is a family-friendly enclave that boasts a great suburban feel close to the big city. 
Natural rock outcroppings are a notable feature of this neighborhood, with many such formations incorporated into backyards, driveways, and even interior home design. The original developers in Thousand Oaks were sensitive to the natural landscape and laid out the streets to follow the gently curving topography. Ancient oaks were preserved, and the largest rock was donated by the developer and turned into a public park. Today, Great Stone Face Park in the hills is still popular with rock climbers practicing their skills.
Public transportation in Thousand Oaks is great. Several Alameda-Contra Costa Transit transbay buses whisk commuters from Solano Avenue to San Francisco. Residents in Thousand Oaks have two BART stations to choose from: both the El Cerrito Plaza and North Berkeley BART stations are just a few miles away.
Large yards, safe streets, and a quiet vibe make Thousand Oaks popular with families.
