This small, Oakland garden is truly designed as an “outdoor room”, an extension of the living space beyond the house. A steel pergola suggests the idea of enclosure and provides structure to hang lighting that illuminates the space at night. This is a plant-lover’s garden, incorporating a wide variety of different flowering plants and interesting succulents. Cohesion is created through a repetition of color and texture. Features include an espaliered apple tree, a vertical succulent garden and a number of colorful container plantings.
