Oakshire Drive, Los Angeles

For this Spanish Revival home nestled in a cool Los Angeles valley, the landscape architecture team of Griffith and Cletta created a garden that represents a romantic foray into the Southern California vernacular.

Evoking the home's eclectic, opulent interior, the space was divided into smaller outdoor rooms, each lavished with the clients' collection of vintage furniture, topiary, and architectural salvage. Moss-covered brick pathways meander through densely planted gardens to connect these private sanctuaries.

Planting strips cut along the perimeter of the existing pool create a naturalistic, pond-like effect. Wisteria and hydrangea offer seasonal color, while California pepper trees bring movement and shade into this hauntingly beautiful design.
