Daily Garden: Baylor’s City Deck

lila b garden baylor chapman sanfrancisco

This Baylor’s (of Lila B Design) garden.  Baylor is a floral and landscape designer and she lives in San Francisco.  Her small (500 sq ft) deck was an opportunity for her to put into action some of the green advice that she gives her clients.

Many of the containers, storage, and decorative elements were sourced from a nearby “creative reuse center” called San Francisco Scrap Metal and working on a tight budget, others were street finds.   My favorite parts of the design are the succulents planted in the shutters and green roofed dog house. What are yours?

    The succulents in the shutters are REALLY cute. I totally envy the blue chairs. And I really like the layering of containers.

    But I don’t know how you can call a 500 sq.ft. deck “small.” I’d say it is enormous.

  2. Katie says:

    I LOVE how they used the window shutters for planters! GENIUS!

  3. Laurie Brown says:

    I love those shutters! I’ve got to try that- I’ve got lots of sedums and semps that would live in something like that.

    I also like how the paint on the chairs picks up the color in the sofa cushion, and the hit of purple color from the tradescantia. But for some reason, I don’t like how the shade of green on the planters goes with the walls!
