Downtown Mediterranean Garden

This large Mediterranean style home a half-block from Novato's main street required low-maintenance and low-water use plants that would compliment the home's architecture. Two existing palms along the front sidewalk blended nicely into the new landscape along with fruitless olives, citrus, pomegranate, and grapevine. Other Mediterranean plants used include California native Deer Grass, yellow-flowered Jerusalem Sage, white-flowering Star Jasmine, and blue-flowering Nile Lilies. Fall and Spring is when the required maintenance is done.
