A typical back yard of a San Francisco residence is rectangular about 25 feet wide by 50 so feet deep. This turned out to be an interesting project. One I enjoyed and pleased the client.
Central aisle of DG leading the eye to the large horizontal bed which will be planted with silver and gold plants.
Spring display with only Viburnum plicatum tomentosum 'Snowflake' is all so far this year.
Structure provided my Carex border, Yew, Box, Hollywood Juniper hedges, color from Phacelia, Leucanthemum, Salvia 'Mystic Spires Blue' and Cosmos. Other notables include Pittosporum 'Golf Ball', Paulownia tomentosa "Empress Tree", Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light' and Acidanthera
This Alamo Square treasure is a contemporary vertical garden created by Gabrielle Cameron in back of a classic SF Victorian. The garden consists of a large collection of epiphytes and bromeliads. Visually decadent while providing a sanctuary for the owners in the heart of the city. "Quiet, handsome and exotic."
A rainy day is a great time to write a new post. Over the last three months I have been working on three new projects. The first is a revival of a container deck planting I installed over 10 years ago. Here I replaced the aging containers and tired plants surrounding this kitchen garden. The small 24" fiberclay containers were crumbling. I designed a 30" box made of galvanized steel and locally fabricated by NuStar on Otis.
