Los Angeles Front Garden, Feb 2023

1200 sq. ft.

Lilacs and a Western Redbud frame this garden, which features all the plants butterflies love.  A dry stream bed passively channels water from a gutter at the corner of the house.  The bird bubbler serves as a visual focal point, and a critical resource for birds and butterflies. 

Hummingbird sage and Monkeyflower are situated on the shadier side of the garden, while Dwarf Coyote Brush, Bladderpod, Brittlebush, and Buckwheat take the full sun areas.  A variety of Milkweed species also serve as hosts and nectar sources, creating a functional butterfly habitat.
