Garden makeovers by Shirley Bovshow in Los Angeles.This was formerly an abandoned narrow side yard used only to store trash cans. Now it is a favorite garden stroll area for the homeowner. See the complete makeover: http://edenmakersblog.com/?p=893 Photo and design by Shirley Bovshow
The landscape of this home honors the formality of Spanish Colonial / Santa Barbara Style early homes in the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix. By re-grading the lot and allowing for terraced opportunities, we featured a variety of hardscape stone, brick, and decorative tiles that reinforce the eclectic Spanish Colonial feel. Cantera and La Negra volcanic stone, brick, natural field stone, and handcrafted Spanish decorative tiles are used to establish interest throughout the property. A front courtyard patio includes a hand painted tile fountain and sitting area near the outdoor fire place. This patio features formal Boxwood hedges, Hibiscus, and a rose garden set in pea gravel. The living room of the home opens to an outdoor living area which is raised three feet above the pool. This allowed for opportunity to feature handcrafted Spanish tiles and raised planters. The side courtyard, with stepping stones and Dichondra grass, surrounds a focal Crape Myrtle tree. One focal point of the back patio is a 24-foot hand-hammered wrought iron trellis, anchored with a stone wall water feature. We added a pizza oven and barbecue, bistro lights, and hanging flower baskets to complete the intimate outdoor dining space.

This Mediterranean style home was given the entrance it deserved with our gate and trellis addition. Beautiful vines and foliage complete the transformation.
Dig Your Garden Landscape Design
Lagoon-side property in the Bel Marin Keys, Novato, CA. Entertaining and enjoying the views were a primary design goal for this project along with replacing the lawn with CA native and low water plants and a total renovation. The project includes a large camaru deck with built-in seating. The concrete steps and pavers lead down to the water's edge. I included a sunken patio on one side and a beautiful Buddha statue on the other, surrounded by succulents and other low-water, contemporary plantings. I also used Dymondia ground cover to create a natural pathways within the garden. Plants shown: Bush Germander (Teucrium fruticans 'Azureum'), Sea Lavender (Limonium perezii, and Blue Oat Grass.

Nicolock Paving Stones and Retaining Walls
Madoc walling captures the beauty of natural stacked field stone in an easy to build wall block. The authentic appearance of dry laid, natural stone is achieved by reproducing the profiles of a number of stones in a single, easy to handle, "Z" shaped Madoc block. Madoc can be used for garden walls, piers, steps, outdoor kitchens, firepits, seat walls, waterfalls, planters, and raised gardens.

Siobhan's Magical Garden Transformations
A no-grass solution, where big trees make it hard to grow grass. This garden has close to no flowers, but tons of color, provided by uniquely colored foliage. The border is custom concrete curbing.

This gorgeous home has a private entry and a colorful drought tolerant landscape to make it engaging from the front. This path had dymondia growing between the stones which is hardy and can be walked upon. It can handle sun and little water however does need trimming and will grow quickly.
