Before & After: Shephard’s Vibrant Los Angeles Hang Out

I am so in love with this before & after and super excited to share it with you guys! Yes- this photo is really the before shot and when I saw it over on Shephard’s blog, I thought maybe I missed the before photo. I mean, come on…how often do you come across a yard that’s already awesome transition into something even more spectacular? Hardly ever. It’s usually old cracked patios or crunchy dead grass or gardens that are beyond parched being made over. Not yards that already have a sweet path snaking through plush, vibrant plantings, leading back towards a cute little corner shed. But, if you’re ready for it, click through to see what this space looks like after the renovation.

Yeah….pretty sweet, isn’t it? I really like how that ocean blue fire glass makes the area feel cool and serene, and that wrap-around bench is amazing. But really, everything about it is fantastic, and it even looks relatively easy to maintain. If this was my place, I’d be out there sipping mojitos and listening to music with friends just about every night. Check out the rest of the yard over at Shephard’s blog. The water and lighting features are pretty impressive. -erin

Before & After: Mediterranean Curb Appeal

This makeover is lovely — gone is the concrete driveway; in it’s place a prettier, permeable green drive. Gone is the lawn; in it’s place a much more interesting mix of water wise plantings. And I am wondering if the tree that was up crowding the house is the same tree that is now planted…

Garden Designers Roundtable: Inspiration

I have REALLY been looking forward to this post for a while.  Literally, since I signed up to write on this topic nearly a year ago.  I had no idea what this last year would bring and the evolutions that I and the projects I am involved with have taken, but here I am in…

Before & After: Swapping a Bench for a Bridge

Last week, Rochelle wrote about Japanese gardens and included some gorgeous images from Martha Stewart Living. I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of this style of gardening and landscapes that are inspired by the idea. That being said, I was pretty excited to find this project earlier today by a company…
