About the Garden

This informal inner-city garden serves as a mini botanical garden in the Vermont Knolls neighborhood of South Central Los Angeles. It provides a habitat for local pollinators and beneficial insects while showcasing the beauty of California native and select zone-friendly plants. Garden design elements include rounded and irregular stones, potted plants, and a vegetable and herb garden. Succulent pocket gardens and cheerful plantings provide sensory delight and year-round displays of foliage and form in a scrapbook of artistic design.
