Venice Beach

With the goal of creating high style on a limited budget, a modest Venice Beach cottage garden was transformed into a private oasis.

Inexpensive and reclaimed building materials, salvaged lumber, and cinder blocks provide the foundation of the design. Low-maintenance plant materials soften the space and thrive with minimal water.

Garage-sale and flea-market furnishings and potted succulents adorn and add to the bohemian mix, proving that it is indeed possible to live luxuriously on a small budget.

Poured-in-place concrete stepping stones set in affordable gravel lead to the raised wood deck. Non-invasive weeping bamboo gracefully overhangs the scene.
