Growing Natives Garden Tour 2017

Lawson Miller Estate (22 photos)

Garden #46, San Jose


Showcase Features: This relatively young front yard garden demonstrates native plant landscaping at its best. Professionally designed and installed with site-appropriate plants like epilobium, trailing sage, deergrass, buckwheat, blue elderberry, and blue oak, it is enthusiastically maintained by the homeowners. Offering something of interest in every season, this large corner lot can be viewed from many vantage points. A true gift to the neighborhood.

Other Garden Attractions: The young blue oak is the focal point while a dry creek meanders through. Large spreading groundcovers like trailing coyote bush and sage contrast well with silvery sandhill sage. Large boulders are effectively integrated with the plants around them. A bench by the front door offers a place to rest and observe the wildlife.

Gardening for Wildlife: Hummingbirds and bees have already discovered this young garden.
