This was done last year and has since grown in quite a bit. If you live in the Riviera section of Torrance, one can easily notice that most of the plants have at least doubled in size.
Designing this landscape was a bit of a daunting task because the plant choice is greatly limited on what will grow underneath Eucalyptus trees, given their leaf litter containing eucalyptus oil, their shading and how the roots compete for moisture.
Mary designed the front landscape, side yards and backyards, provided the plants and arranged to have them planted. She planted a few containers as focal points in the gardens.
And this container is the crowning touch to her porch. Wow. It was late last Summer that we did this. This is not a recent picture, but her succulent container is still looking pretty good…
