Garden 40 in Pasadena

Design: Scrub Jay Studios
Garden Size: 7,075 square feet front and back
Started: 2014
Notable Features: The fallen trunk of a maple tree lost to oak root fungus became a front yard sculpture. Native plants were selected for disease resistance and vibrant color. A dry streambed along the driveway captures runoff. The back yard includes a labyrinth and writer’s retreat. Throughout the property, upcycled hardscaping merges with unusual native plant choices, including a side yard of native iris.
