First time Eco-Friendly Garden Tour host and professional landscaper Teliha introduces her garden:
This quaint garden in Fairfax proves that good things really do come in small packages! An exceptional example of a turf replacement project, its balance of landscape and art is truly inspirational. Interested in taking advantage of the State of California’s Turf Replacement Rebate, the owner decided to transform the previous lawn into a beautiful spiraling pathway. Matching the theme of mosaics found throughout the garden, each recycled stone is individually decorated with unique clusters of patterned tile or recycled beads, and the pathway is set in sand to make it permeable. Also replacing part of the lawn are native, low-water-use plants and a few veggie crops. Along the lower section of the garden is a creative solution to keeping unwanted visitors at bay: Swathed in vibrant Wisteria vines, a column and cable retaining wall keeps deer out without sacrificing the view!
