Garden 8 in Manhattan Beach

Design: Oakley Gardens
Garden Size: 4,000 square feet front and back
Started: 2012
Notable Features: A California Mission-style garden combines classical and modern elements to complement a 1925 Spanish Revival home. Several native species are endemic to the Channel Islands. A permeable driveway and walkway, as well as underground infiltration pits, capture rain onsite for the Indian and apricot mallows, toyon, and ceanothus. Repurposed concrete forms inviting seating and a raised-bed kitchen garden.
