A Theodore Payne Foundation Native Garden Tour favorite, the Weiss garden, will open its gates to guests once again in August.  The Santa Monica Conservancy, which seeks to honor and preserve classicly Santa Monica architectural styles will showcase this gem.

The early 20th century workman’s cottage stands in front of a darling guest home and stand alone garage. Guided tours of the home will give you an intimate view of its history, evolution and environmentally sensitive expansion.  Learn how the owners collaborated with restoration architect Michele McDonough to balance respect for the original architecture with contemporary livability.

The vibrant garden designed, built and maintained by FormLA Landscaping unifies the property’s structures through interlocking decks and permeable paths that meander past edible gardens, a waterfall, and lawns of yarrow and a buffalo-fescue Ideal Mow lawn alternative blend.

A wine and cheese reception will be held in the beautiful garden.  The owners, architect, and FormLA Landscaping experts will be present to answer questions.

Save the date and make it a beach day!
