Altadena, CA | Overlooking Eaton Canyon this 1920's era 
California Spanish revival home has been through a number of
transitions but, fortunately, much of its original style has been
preserved.

Designed to entice visitors toward powerful views, the gardens
include Mediterranean region plants that respect the surrounding
landscape, classic favorites to provide vivid color, and even a 
variety of fruit trees. Period pottery is a wonderful accent for 
unusual succulents chosen to join a colorful palette of plants 
in the fountain courtyard.  

To ensure ongoing success, Melissa meets monthly with the 
property's maintenance gardeners to guide the care of the
beautiful native plants and succulents included in this design.

In collaboration with MG Design & Reid Construction.
