Garden in transition: 1940 concrete walls terrace this hillside property. The transition to native California and Mediterranean plantings began in ernest 3 years ago. Many recycled elements and playful details are repurposed in this vibrant garden. A new wide curved stair replaces the previous warren of small stair connections. Bold cactus and succulents draw your eyes up to the hill. Planting with an eye toward habitat, it is definitely a private wild kingdom.
