Few gardens illustrate LA’s potential for year round greenery like this 2016 Art of the Garden Tour home in Altadena. In the winter months, multiple shades of green ensconce petite patios with lush and leafy foliage. From spring through autumn, the garden comes to life with blooms ranging from buttercup carpeteria and scarlet red Mexican Lobelia to lilac grey Ceanothus. Raised edible gardens deliver a an ever-evolving array of seasonal delights.
Walks and patios, likewise, illustrate the New Look for LA, an aesthetic that can only be achieved in our Mediterranean climate. A shaded outdoor great room with fireplace welcomes visits throughout the year. Gravel, flagstone, and permeable concrete patios allow water to absorb into the soil, preventing runoff in El Nino and making use of every drop in drought.
In addition to the well-established back garden, the Art of the Garden Tour Sunday, April 17, 2016 will feature a newly installed front garden designed to maximize the traditional home’s curb appeal. In the meantime, see more of the garden in Houzz or checkout our garden palettes in Pinterest to get the look.
