About the Garden

Red fairy-duster cascades over the courtyard wall of a 1924 Spanish-style home. The 2000 square feet comprising the front and side yards of this corner lot were adapted from lawn-based landscaping over 2013-2015, and now contain mature native plants mixed with California landscaping fixtures. Buckwheat, black sage, mallows, and woolly blue curls pay homage to the San Gabriel Mountains, and desert museum palo verdes occupy the Palo Verde Avenue parkway.
