Garden 40 in Pasadena

Design: Scrub Jay Studios
Total Garden Size: 7,075 square feet front and back
Year Started: 2014
Notable Features: The fallen trunk of a maple tree lost to oak root fungus became front yard sculpture, and native plants were selected for disease resistance and vibrant color. A dry streambed runs along the driveway to direct and capture runoff. Back yard includes a labyrinth and writer’s retreat. Throughout the property, upcycled hardscaping merges with unusual native plant choices.
