Garden #37, San Jose


Showcase Features: A large corner lot, formerly covered with lawn, becomes a native oasis, with a pleasant sitting area enclosed with shrubs and flowers, while saving water and maintenance time.

Other Garden Attractions: Ceanothus and blue wild rye accent the parking strip, with gum plant and seaside daisy for year-round color. The driveway is bordered with deer grass. Verbena lilacina blooms all-year round, bring color and fragrance to sunny areas. Under the large existing shade tree woodland strawberry, coral-bells and Pacific iris are thriving. Colorful native perennials and grasses surround a sunny pervious patio. A large coffeeberry and California rose provide screening from the street. A beautiful wooden fence surrounds the garden without blocking views.

Gardening for Wildlife: Birds and beneficial insects visit the garden.
