|AFTER DETAIL (NOW)|
Three years ago, this was a dry lawn in Echo Park.
I came by recently to see how the plantings were doing after almost 3 years in the ground, and found a riot of forms and color. It's a wonderful space to walk into, and gives so much privacy and lushness, but without too much care or water, and without completely blocking out the neighborhood. It still feels welcoming, but private.

The transformation since newly planted to a few years later, when the plants have grown in, is pretty dramatic! See next three photos for BEFORE, JUST PLANTED vs. GROWN IN:
