Gardens that right the world
If you are here, you are contemplating change. Congratulations! Many view gardens as decorative. We see them as transformative for people and the planet. If you are ready to step into the power of your yard and transform the world for the better, we’re here to guide your through the process.
Let's make Earth's Favorite Gardens the New Normal!
If a tree dies in your yard and no one is around to make it fall, does it make a sound? Yes! The sound of chicks peeping, birds singing, animals scurrying.
Most people know exactly what a snag is, even if they don’t know it by that name. A snag is simply a standing dead or partially-dead tree. While some people may view them as hazardous or untidy, snags are actually quite important to wildlife. Many animals make their homes in or on snags, including birds, bats, small mammals, snakes, and invertebrates. Snags are extremely important structural elements for wildlife, and may make up the entire habitat of some creatures, like insects. They quickly become favored nesting spots for birds, preferred perches for raptors. There is always something happening at the snags
Angelenos lead the nation in the creativity and diversity of our architecture, our fashion, our tech.
So, why do we continue to have fine lawns and groomed shrubbery spaced unnaturally far apart in a desperate attempt to look like one another? To look like suburban Ohio? We can do better!
There are additional negative consequences that come with a city full of exotic plants already laced with pesticides from the big box stores.
We encourage homeowners to loosen up their landscape. Be less worried about neat and tidy, and embrace our native plants. Let go of the tidy exotic garden a little bit and the butterflies and birds will come!
There are few plants more visually arresting in a shady garden when grouped together than California native coral bells. I find this aesthetic an optimally compelling complement to natural and classic landscapes.
Coral bells produce delightful blooms that brighten up any shady area. The blooms featured here are a favorite food source for hummingbirds and the foliage stays green year round.
