An inspired succulent and cactus garden in Westwood
As you can see, the photo is 2 years old--- and continuously inspiring.
Volante's garden has all the charm of the classic Perennial border as envisioned by great gardeners like Gertrude Jekyll. But the classic perennial border simply uses too much water for So Cal. This garden was the first I'd seen to achieve the lush, colorful look English garden look without the lavish over-use of water. Volante described it as being "It's a little English garden plus a little desert garden".
