where steph, nancy and i stayed this weekend. lovely.

edible los angeles did such a nice write up of us in their latest issue!

we talk about our design of front yard vegetable gardens which is something that we did quite a few of this season. we have always talked to our clients about incorporating edibles into a portion of the garden which i find to be essential, and to use fruit trees whenever and wherever possible. thanks to those who have allowed us to help them break the mold in such an exciting way!

you can pick up an issue at a farmers market near you...

hope you are all well and enjoying the summer to fall transition. today was over a hundred degrees here in la... we can't wait for cooler temps and RAIN!
