What makes a garden regionally appropriate? Fifteen private gardens_x000D_ designed by leading landscape architects answer that question for arid Southern California by directly addressing the climate, landscape, and_x000D_ culture they inhabit. Whether small or large, urban or rural, luxurious_x000D_ or low budget, these resilient outdoor spaces are finely attuned to the Mediterranean climate and the indoor-outdoor lifestyle for which Southern_x000D_ California is known. They make use of local building materials and_x000D_ craftspeople and offer their owners a unique emotional connection to_x000D_ nature. Firmly planted in time and place, the projects, complete with_x000D_ plans, define not so much a style as an experience and thrive with_x000D_ little effort from their owners.
