An English Garden in California
AN ENGLISH GARDEN IN CALIFORNIA
This homeowner had always wanted a lush, English garden, yet she realized that living in California’s drought-like conditions with intense summer sun meant using plants best suited to her region’s climate. She feared that meant her garden would have to consist of succulents, grasses and those might be at home in the desert.
However, by choosing regionally appropriate plants within a green and serene color palette the garden now has the elegant yet lush appearance she desired. This small garden also has the illusion of being much larger than it actually is through creative layering in its many tight spaces.
