KTLA. March 18, 2015. Gale Anderson: A perennial garden tour favorite, the Weiss garden in Santa Monica earned a Santa Monica Conservancy award for the historic authenticity and beauty of its outdoor spaces. If you can’t enjoy the garden in person during the 2015 Theodore Payne Foundation Native Garden Tour, Gayle Anderson with KTLA‘s video tour is the next best thing! See vibrant native foliage, two distinctive IdealMow lawn alternatives, architecturally raised beds of edibles, as well as a biological pond, flowing permeable pathways and interlocking decks.
