Home landscapes at the Wildland Urban Interface of Southern California require a unique set of considerations, including protection from wildfires. This private garden in Tujunga is a beautiful example of how wildfire safety features can be built into a stunning landscape that also provides local wildlife habitat. Home protection features such as defensible spaces, ember catching trees, and summer irrigated plantings can be seen in this garden, alongside a sedge meadow, sages, and native and succulent container plants. While the utility and safety features of this garden are important, it truly shines as a space to relax and entertain, for people and pets. Enjoy this thoughtfully designed garden at the edge of the city.

The plants kind of do that, they kind of tug us in a little bit… the plants just kind of wrap you and bring you in and it just makes your heart sing.
