Garden 21 in Historic Filipinotown

Design: Homeowner
Total Garden Size: 5,000 square feet front and back
Year Started: 2004
Notable Features: A former medical building near downtown is now a residence and landscape designed for restored urban habitat in a modernist style. A streetside garden with native shrubs and non-native foxtail agave stands up to car and pedestrian traffic. Sages surround a sun-drenched upper terrace with clusters of cacti and succulents. The back patio leads to the asphalt parking lot where white sage, lemonadeberry, and deergrass thrive. Uncommon natives include saffron buckwheat, Ken Taylor flannel bush, and pink-flowering sumac (from Baja California).
