Garden Recipe

The goal was to create a clean and modern space that would actually be a small garden within a larger landscape.  The concept was to have a retreat, where the garden is so low maintenance that you can enjoy the beauty, and not always feel that you should be maintaining the space.  The design for this garden began with architectural planters, then built the garden based off their geometric shapes.  There is a juxtaposition of these shapes along with the organic structures of the succulents.  When the plants grow and mature the planters will become more incorporated into the design.

1. Find a space within your garden to create a retreat.

2. Determine the shape and configuration of your raised bed and attached sitting area.

3. Have a contractor frame and pour your raised bed.

4. When the planter has completely dried, fill with soil and add in perlite.

5. Place the added planters on top of the soil and add pavers underneath to keep them level.

6. Plant your focal succulents first, then add in your secondary plants in drifts throughout the remaining space.

Finish with a gravel ground cover around the edge of the raised planter.
