• 390 sq.ft. of raised bed garden space with automated drip irrigation

• Chickens are an option with an acceptable plan to keep them from digging out the raised beds. We currently have a 4 hen coup we are trying to sell but can include it with the rental if interested.
• Dogs or cats may be considered on a case-by-case basis with a main concern being that the animals are house and garden friendly.
• Landscaping includes: persimmon, pomegranate, kiwi, grapes, plum, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, jasmine, lavendar, rosemary, asparagus, and various native flowers.
• Perennials currently under cultivation include: tomatoes, bell peppers, egg plant, zuchhini, corn, pole beans, and pumpkin.

We plan on renting this property for at least five years. We are seeking a 1 year lease starting August 1st at $1350 per month with a $1000 deposit.
We plan on investing in improvements on an annual basis and would like to consult with our tenant about their priorities for upgrades.
