COURTNEY AVENUE

The clients for this project in Los Angeles were seeking a low-maintenance container garden to be located in a corner space between the house and the landscape beyond. We sought to carve out a space of simple but singular containers of varying heights and sizes that would provide a soft, three-dimensional transition between the vertical plane of the house, and the horizontal plane of the patio. The plant palatte consists of low-water succulents, and Mediterranean species, as well as three higher-water citrus trees (planted in large glazed terra cotta containers so as to minimize evapotranspiration), which were provided to add a simple shot of fresh green, an inviting fragrance, and pollinators to the landscape.

This goal for this landscape in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, was to create a drought-tolerant container garden that would soften the transition from the patio to the house. We used yuccas, echeverias, and other low-water succulents. We also planted three citrus trees to provide a simple shot of green and sweet-smelling flowers to the landscape.
