Garden Tour 2015

‘Zenfully’ Green

This garden has a ‘zen’ vibe and feels like a secret meditation area nestled in a forested meadow. The palette of evergreens including Weeping Blue Atlas Cedar, Redwood and a variety of junipers gives the garden strong structure. Clustered stone and vertical basalt ground the garden. These are softened by ornamental grasses like Blue Fescue, Creeping Red Fescue and Zebra Grass.

This ‘greener’ garden benefits from a northern exposure which reduces its daily water requirements and exposure to late afternoon sun and heat.

On our visit to the garden we were pleasantly surprised to see a pair of native California Carpenter Bees flitting about. Something good is happening in this garden if it’s attracting native pollinators!
