All gardens are a work in progress, and Alex’s garden is no exception. This garden has been evolving for over 40 years through the gardening work of Alex, her grandmother, and her mother. It began as a very thirsty garden with annual flower borders and extensive lawn area and is now one that is drought tolerant with limited lawn, featuring Mediterranean plants with a few annual and perennial color accents.
Alex’s vision for the garden is that it is a place where you can escape and relax, as well as a place that provides shelter for birds and butterflies. You will see a slight influence of Japanese garden design through the concept of a garden that reveals itself as you walk through it.
A slight English garden influence is also seen through the deep planting borders. The plant palette comes mostly from Mediterranean climate plants, which are primarily green, grey and lavender. The garden has a patio built on the side of the house and two additional seating areas, which provide multiple garden views for outdoor living. Alex hopes that you will enjoy visiting her garden!
