About the Garden

Perched above the bustling thoroughfare of Beverly Boulevard, this private garden brings nature into the urban core. Street side, deergrass sprouts vigorously from holes punched in concrete, while wildflowers, sages, flannel bush and manzanitas bloom in the gardens above. This residential property was originally a hospital, which was carefully transformed into an elegant, modern living space. Outdoor patios are framed by mature native specimens, including rare and endangered species. In the back, a parking lot has been converted into a propagation area and mini citrus orchard with views of downtown LA. Experience the beauty and connection to the local environment that native plant gardens can provide in the most urban settings.
