Cottage Garden FusionMediterranean Landscape, Los Angeles
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.
