This charming Spanish Colonial Revival home located in an Historic Overlay Zone was a gem but its garden was neglected and forlorn. The front entrance was off to the side and, lacking a path to it, unwelcoming. We moved the entrance to face the front and constructed a curving brick path to it surrounded by a sea of coral roses. The depressing side yard was turned into a verdant tropical oasis and the back a delightful spot to relax replete with the gentle burbling of a fountain. Even the unused front courtyard became a place to stop with its own water feature and container garden.

The ethereal blossoms of these 'Cape Cod' roses seem to bloom all year round. They frame the new brick pathway extending a warm invitation to come in. Seen from the street they look like dainty pink clouds lining the walk. Photos by Vladimir Sheinberb

A verdant forest has replaced the drab concrete driveway that was there before. Getting to the back yard has become an adventure in and of itself in which you can gaze at the many plants along the curving path. A climbing rose (“All Ablaze”) scampers up the five foot high trellis that was added to the brick wall to create privacy. Photos by Vladimir Sheinberb

This narrow back area was dull and boring. By treating the wall with a Mediterranean wall treatment and placing a fountain, a focal point has been created, as well as a wonderful place to sit and drink coffee or read a book while listening to the soothing sounds of the water.

The serpentine path meanders around the garden transforming into patio when needed. In front of the guesthouse is a cheerful little garden filled with fragrant Peppermint Geranium, Lamb's Ears, Iceberg Rose, Red Fountain Grass and Princess Flower. The velvety textures of the foliage and soft colors are a handsome foil to the paving. Photos by Vladimir Sheinberb

The front yard had no path to the sidewalk - the arch had been bricked up long ago. Along with a dead lawn it was as welcoming as a no trespassing sign. I opened up the arch and added a gently curving path to the sidewalk flanked by ethereal pink rose bushes (Cape Cod) that seem to be forever blooming. Now the front yard graciously invites you in.

Pendulous blooms of Brugmansia candida drip from a tree underplanted with Lamb's Ear and Calla Lily. Against the wall, Podocarpus gracilior creates a privacy barrier (which was previously sorely lacking) between my client and her neighbor. Photos by Vladimir Sheinberb

The side garden was a depressing swath of concrete. Removing it gave us the opportunity to turn the area into an enchanting path that beckons the visitor to enter into the back yard. The plants are lush and abundant with ravishing orange Canna “Tropicanna” rising above. The original concrete was broken up, stained with iron sulfate and reused to great effect.

Adding the new trellis created a private space for the hammock. Painted a soft green, it compliments the warm tones of the wall and paving. The old brick had to be scraped and sanded by hand to get rid of the old paint but the effect was well worth it. Photos by Vladimir Sheinberb
