Experimental Garden, Oakland
An ongoing and evolving garden, this project is a lab for trialing new plants and experimenting with new color palettes and textures. Meant to add a quirky fun element to the neighborhood and to engage local children into thinking about the joys of gardening. An emphasis is placed on providing food sources for beneficial insects and birds. After removing the existing lawn and junipers, the garden was planted with beautiful but drought tolerant plants. Once surrounded by a sea of neighboring lawns this garden is now being joined by other new, fun, converted gardens.
