The design for this garden in Hollywood obscures the suburban lot’s rigid geometry by using a bold paving pattern and breaking up the spaces with curved planting beds. A struggling lawn gave way to a new patio ringed with woodland plants and delicate bamboos, artfully incorporating the owner’s unique plant collection and creating a spot for raised vegetables within the design. A rich color palette of plums, silvers and many shades of green reflects the clients’ Craftsman home. Beautiful ‘Coral Sea’ pebbles are exposed on the surface of the custom concrete pavers for a special touch, and a new fountain nestled into shade tolerant bamboo brings movement and sound to the garden.
