Garden 13 in Altadena

More than a decade ago, this narrow 6,000 sq. ft. lot was transformed into a wild and fun landscape complete with the art installation “The History of the West.” Described by the owner as a “semi-formal collector’s garden,” it includes a winding path, a gabion wall, and a rammed-earth bench nestled below a century-old coast live oak. Watch for spring wildflowers, a dudleya-studded cliff, espaliered flannel bush, and many rare plants from our state and Baja California. Design: Scrub Jay Studios. Photography: Philip Otto Photography.
