2017 Garden of the Month Archives


This month’s theme is California Friendly ™Native Gardens.  We thought it was the right place to start - in our own backyard so to speak.  This garden is located in Encinitas California in North San Diego County. The garden features a no-lawn front yard full of mature Manzanita’s and Yarrow.  The backyard is a serene meadow of wildflowers with a path meandering to a seating area.  A beautiful deck overlooks the meadow from the home and is adorned with California Wild Grape. Birds, butterflies, and neighbors love this garden and visit often.

The California Friendly™ Garden Guide lists more than 1,500 plants. Find out more about the plants mentioned in the video:
