Private Residence

Design & Care: Francisco Ruiz (resident)

Garden Size: 3,000 sq. ft., front/back

Started: 2015

We started our garden as a turf-removal rebate project in 2015. It now showcases an assortment of California natives along with some non-natives. The former front-yard lawn was replaced by a decomposed granite path winding past a manzanita and a desert willow to arrive at a pre-existing rose garden. We also converted the sloped back yard from lawn to mostly California natives. We added a shady pavilion next to our western redbud to create a relaxing indoor/outdoor space. It has been very enjoyable to see the progress and to learn from the garden.
