Art of the Garden, Pasadena

The Art of the Garden Tour, hosted by the Creative Arts Group of Sierra Madre, is known for showcasing noteworthy gardens in the foothill communities of Los Angeles. In 2016, the tour will feature five water wise gardens, including this Pasadena garden and two others created and maintained by FormLA Landscaping.


This southwestern-style garden bursts with colors and textures that draw attention to the terra cotta tile roof of the home. Rich with color and texture, the garden adds far more than curb appeal. A dry river routes water flow away from the home into garden beds ripe with chartreuse, blue-grey and bronze foliage. Bright green foliage joints integrated into the concrete car park likewise add pops of color and also prevent runoff. Trees of varied textures bring vertical interest, deep greens, and cool the air around the home by as much as 20 degrees.
Enjoy both the front and back gardens during the Art of the Garden Tour Sunday, April 17, 2016. In the meantime, see more of the garden in Houzz or checkout our garden palettes in Pinterest to get the look.
