Garden A

Garden A – 5906 McGee
This 1915 home provided the owner with a blank slate. The garden design was created in order to minimize turf, use
different levels and incorporate a variety of plants. A visitor to the home is greeted by a Lyman Whitaker wind sculpture in the front yard. The garden is an example of how to meet the challenges of small, shady spaces. The back yard is especially efficient using tiered terraces, a retaining wall and a dry creek bed. This garden has both part sun and shade exposures. Plants were chosen carefully to thrive in each setting. Some of the favorites to look for are boxwood, dwarf Korean lilac, Cloud nine dogwood, viburnum and an espaliered Anjou pear tree. Enjoy this well planned urban garden.
