Join us at the vibrant and varied Otero garden for the Pacific Palisades Garden Club Spring Tour.
From the curvy, tree-lined street, visitors will see an extraordinary rock wall and exquisite gate marking the entry to the Otero’s private outdoor wonderland. A wood and paver patio plays host to gurgling water features and a host of container gardens.
Swing sets for the young and the young at heart are perched along a winding trail in the front garden, which also contains a garden with many spices and peppers used in Thai dishes. In the transition between the front and back outdoor spaces, see a gardener’s dream staging area, complete with planting shelves and a large open compost area.
The back patio’s mix of permeable pavers and pavers with lush, living joints offers a playful flair. From the artistic firepit surrounded by plush seating or the spa-deck with built in seating, view a truly extraordinary section of Santa Monica canyon with the sparkling ocean beyond. If you look closely, you might also get a glimpse of the family’s innovative hillside veggie garden!
