Garden 40 in Torrance
This front and back landscape, planted four years ago and totaling 2,000 sq. ft., includes native plants from varied environments (sun and shade, wet and dry). Clay soil is a serious challenge. Reduced water use and low maintenance are key goals, as is showcasing the beauty and diversity of natives. The front features a huge tree mallow. Recycled hardscape and deck, garden sculpture, containers and fountains add interest.
