A delight for the many people who walk, jog, or drive by every day! The landscape features unique trees, palms, and a riot of color with blooming flowers during every month of the year. Perfectly manicured – the front, the side, the corner, and even the alley cause the neighbors to pause and enjoy the views – and provide inspiration for our gardens too!
