While in Santa Barbara last month, I finally snapped a couple photos of my brother’s garden. It’s been about nine months since I installed these low-maintanence plants and they’re thriving. I’d forgotten how easy it is for things to grow in this warm, mild climate.
I used Woolly Pockets to soften the transition from the cement wall to the wooden fence and love that the once-tiny plants are now spilling over the top. In another six months the fabric should be completely hidden. And a trumpet vine is already beginning to cover the wooden fence.
It’s a little oasis that’ll keep getting better and better.
