English Cottage Garden

I gave this charming, remodeled, Laguna Beach home, a true English Cottage Garden. Structure and whimsy evoke a different experience in each area of the garden with an element of surprise. In the retreat garden for the guest quarters awaits a relaxing lounge chair and antique slider, nestled beneath a rose engulfed arch. The garden is peppered throughout with citrus and fruit trees. A “parterre” of boxwood encase blankets of color that change with each season. Three rose filled arches soften the hedge surrounding the garden. A gazebo allows the homeowner to dine “alfresco” next to a soft trickling wall fountain, encased by a wisteria vine. A bird bath fountain surrounded by rose trees attracts birds year round. The lavender lined stone and gravel pathway, leads to a quite bench with a vista that allows the onlooker to experience the whole garden against the backdrop of the blue Pacific.
