Today’s photos come from Mario Herrada, a landscape designer in the Bay Area of California, who is sharing some photos of a beautiful entry garden created for a client in Kensington, California.
The water feature acts as the focal point for the garden. Drought-tolerant and deer-resistant plant material has been selected. Plant material has been chosen for the color of the foliage as well as for flower color. The ornamental grasses with their plumes moving to the slightest breeze create a relaxing atmosphere. The garden attracts hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees. A Connecticut bluestone staircase and walkway lead you to the front door of this classic ranch-style home.
