Hi there! I have had a lot of requests for more updates on the Monterey Colonial our daughter
purchased a few years ago here in Montecito!
The previous posts are at the end of this post!
She removed some shrubbery crowding this beautiful jacaranda tree; and changed the planting
behind the boxwoods to only purple agapanthus. There were lots of them sprinkled all
over the property; so she moved them all here.
When they bloom under the purple blossoms it will be a show!
Here is the front porch with the Anduze pots with topiaries. Everything simplified!
there is a lovely new gate in the background on the left. It was made to match the back gate.
Around the back of the house; she has added oak leaf hydrangeas, and star jasmine.
Right around the corner.
Another new gate to match the back gate! The pool is on the other side!
Remember when you couldn’t see the pool from the garden? She opened up the hedge!
It is still private; but you have a glimpse!
The beds are also simplified with white agapanthus, iceberg roses and Viburnum.
The original back gate!
The other side!
Behind the above hedge is another whole garden! Avocado trees, wildflowers, fruit trees
and raised potager beds!
3 avocado trees all different species so they fruit at different times!
My favorite! Lavender, matillija poppies, artichokes and herbs! And roses!
I think they are doing a beautiful job of this garden!
I think my favorite of all are these oak trees in the front which were never
Congratulations to our daughter, her husband and their gardener!!!!
