Garden 3 in Santa Monica

Design: Original plan by Stephanie Wilson Blanc; recent updates from Krystal Chang
Total Garden Size: 6,000 square feet front and back
Year Started: 2004
Notable Features: A formally pruned manzanita hedge frames a casual 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 garden runoff, and hydrates mature ceanothus and toyon. Backyard mixes California natives with plants from other Mediterranean climates. South side of house features a classical Spanish courtyard-style fountain.

partially accessible | no restroom
