Los Angeles Neighborhood Friendly Garden

As members of a tightly knit community in Los Angeles' Larchmont Village, my clients asked for a relaxing front garden where they could watch their children play in the neighborhood. The tiled stairs were designed with deep risers to double as seating for friends and neighbors. Full of color and texture, low-water plantings were carefully tiered to keep the views open.

Thanks for your question. The homeowner selected the house color, so I'm sorry but I don't know the brand/name.

Ground cover? - Can you please tell me the kind of ground cover that frames the sidewalk? And is it hardy enough for people to walk on?

Hi Susan: That is Dymondia margaretae, and yes, it is study enough to walk on, but it requires full sun. It makes a very dense mat.
