3628 Rosewood Avenue

This garden project began in 2009 with a goal to remove a two-car concrete slab that occupied most of the front yard, and replace struggling non-native plants and a water-guzzling lawn. 

They opted for an outdoor deck, rosemary and thyme groundcover with flagstone pathways, low-water plants and trees, and a permeable one-car driveway that doubles as a planter.  They asked Ocean Charter mom and designer Patty Binder to help them create a child-friendly garden that would attract butterflies and bees, and hummingbirds and fairies.

The garden has bloomed and become a favorite gathering space for family and friends.  They've since added a shade canopy on the deck and installed solar panels to the collect sunshine on our roof. Open Neighborhoods will be on hand to answer questions about their community solar programs.
