A plain and narrow patio in Long Beach, California, is transformed into a modern outdoor sanctuary.
After: Architectural Plantings
A modernist planting scheme reflects Gerry's clean and simple aesthetic sense. Two key plants, dragon tree (Dracaena
) and mother-in-law's tongue (Sansevieria
), are used throughout the garden to create a unified "green" look with an architectural feel. A combination of cedar fencing and a stucco wall creates more privacy while providing a contemporary backdrop for the plantings. The concrete pad has a fresh coat of paint.
