Restoration of a Traditional Garden in a Montecito Estate

The client did a major remodel to this house in Montecito, therefore she wanted to freshen the gardens as well. In re-routing the driveway, three large Oak trees were boxed up and kept safe for over a year, then re-planted in other locations on the property. The client also asked for a white garden, so white Azaleas, Camellias, Delphiniums, Foxglove, Roses and Alyssum were planted along the Italian cobble stone driveway and motor court. The lotus pond is a prominent feature in this garden. Notice the wonderful Mulberry trees along the backside of the pond. (see the Sunset Magazine article in Feature Articles)
