Garden #35, Santa Clara


Showcase Features: An enchanting pocket garden with a beautiful small pond surrounded by an amazing variety of native plantings is a magnet for birds, dragonflies, butterflies and frogs.

Other Garden Attractions: This garden is definitely worth finding in its condo complex. Once you open the gate you will be astonished by the variety of native plants in a small area. Shady woodland, wetland/riparian, chaparral and coastal bluff plants each have their mini-ecotone. The garden is accented with art and many hanging baskets filled with natives and succulents. Incredibly, there is also a small raised bed for edibles and a rain barrel to capture runoff water. Almost everything in the garden is made from reclaimed materials.

Gardening for Wildlife: Tree frogs, pacific toads, hummingbirds, juncos, finches, doves, butterflies, dragonflies and other insects find a haven in this garden.
