MADE FROM | JAPANESE CHARRED WOOD GARDEN WALL

A charred wood plank wall defines the drought-tolerant garden of a Ventura, CA bungalow. We used the ancient Japanese method of shou-sugi-ban, which rendered the reclaimed cedar (traditionally Japanese cypress) fire, rot and pest resistant while imparting a striking black, slightly iridescent finish that’s both modern and low maintenance.
