Growing Natives Garden Tour 2017

Quintana Front Yard (5 photos)

Garden #11, Palo Alto


Showcase Features: This small urban front yard provides a home to plants with distinct habitat requirements: several clumps of shade-tolerant bunch grasses are thriving near the northeast side of the house which remains shaded most of the time. Salvias are planted as a transition to the more sunny area of the front yard, where a dry creek is a border between the lush greenery to a more desert-like habitat, populated with succulents. A berm with several manzanitas will become a focal point in the future.

Other Garden Attractions: The dry creek is the lowest part of the front yard; several sedges planted in its middle will enjoy the run-off from the rains.
