The eclectic vibe of our in-town neighborhoods can often be seen in gardens and in the intimate porches and patios of historic homes. When the owners of this classic 1920s bungalow designed their garden, they wanted a landscape filled with year-round interest. The slightly elevated lot provides passers-by unique perspectives of the welcoming front yard, which is dappled with light coming through the 100-year-old Willow Oaks that line the street. A custom cedar gate and arbor leads to the rear garden, which features an array of colors, textures and fragrances from oldfashioned favorites like Magnolias, Gardenias and Osmathus. A rose covered pergola is flanked by a stunning Japanese maple, creating an ideal setting for alfresco dining, and the private seating area is complemented by a re-circulating water feature.
