Garden 3 in Santa Monica

Design: Stephanie Wilson Blanc; recent updates by Krystal Chang
Garden Size: 6,000 square feet front and back
Started: 2004
Notable Features: A formal manzanita hedge frames a welcoming patio space in front of the 1936 Cecil Gale-designed Spanish Revival home. The underground cistern, disguised as a dry river bed, captures roof and landscape runoff, and hydrates mature ceanothus and toyon. The back yard showcases California natives alongside plants from other Mediterranean climates. The south side of house features a classical Spanish courtyard-style fountain.
