Sheri sprays her special blend

Sheri sprays her special blend

I decided to treat my garden to an early Thanksgiving feast.  I had Sheri Powell-Wolff of Compostina out to spray her special blend of compost tea.  She arrived all smiles with her big tank of garden goodness in tow which she affectionately calls “Brewce”.  She quickly covered my parkway of edibles, roses and aussie natives and then moved on to my fruit trees and California natives.  I could practically see the plants reaching out to get sprayed with the sticky goodness.  I even inadvertently got in the way of the spray and I can attest to it’s coverage ability.  This is important because it forms a thin layer on foliage and provides a plethora of protective qualities to the plant.  There’s a definite science to making compost tea whereby the compost “starter” needs to be aerated and the fungi and bacteria populations are amped up by adding different ingredients like humic acid for fungal growth or molasses for bacteria.  Compost tea applications can do wonders for soil remediation addressing issues such as compaction, low soil biology, lowering weed populations, and improving water and nutrient holding capacity.  I can’t wait to see how my garden shows it’s gratitude for this very special treat.

Local water “bad girl” makes good

Mix of Phormium 'firebird' and Anigozanthos 'Big Red'

This last summer I helped another lucky Santa Monica resident take advantage of Santa Monica’s Sustainable Landscape Grant program. Her front yard consisted of a pine tree, an olive tree, a few shrubs and a whole lot of grass. Really it was the perfect project because she was excited to remove all of the grass and really loved the structural look of succulents. Removing the grass was especially important because she had been cited for watering overspray and her water bills were high. Because her house is very close to Santa Monica College she needed a design solution that would help block a lot of the trash that would blow into her yard. To this end, we came up with the idea of decomposed granite berms to showcase the lovely Agave medio picta ‘Alba’, Agave attenuata, Euphorbia tirucalli and various other smaller succulents. The berms allow the homeowner a sense of enclosure without really blocking her off from the world. In additon, we created a meadow effect using Festuca idahoensis ‘Siskiyou Blue’. This particular variety is a little tougher to find than the regular Festuca glauca (Blue Fescue Grass) but well worth it because it grows larger and has more movement and interest. turkey Now this local water “bad girl” is not only the proud owner of a sustainable garden she is paying drastically less on water each month.  An important figure to remember is a 1,000 square foot lawn will require about 600 gallons/week.  Since the old lawn and adjacent plantings were about 1,500 square feet, this means about 900 gallons a week was required to keep it alive.  The new garden will take about a third of the water at the outset and less as the garden becomes established.  Now that’s exciting!

What the…!

Wow, now that's a flower!

Wow, now that's a flower!

For me WTF means What’s That Flower?!  I often find myself thinking that when I walk around the “hood”.  Well, I nearly gasped when I saw this one on Cliffwood.  It was peering over a fence almost like alien loudspeaker saying “hey, check me out!”.  It’s a Dutchman’s Pipe (Aristolochia tomentosa) vine and the bloom is seriously bigger than a human head.  Anytime you see “tomentosa” in a botanical name you know there are hairs involved somewhere.  With this plants the hairs are actually in the flowers and help prevent insects from escaping when they come to pay a visit.  Eventually the insects do escape no worse for the wear and covered with pollen.  This monster of a bloom uses a rotten meat like smell to attract insects.  Thank goodness the wind was blowing in my favor the day I happened upon this vine!

This summer I had the pleasure of designing another sustainable landscape grant garden in Santa Monica.  This was a particularly fun project for many reasons.  First of all my client was fun and really new what she wanted and finally I was able to design with a lot of succulents.  The garden turned out great and I’ll be posting photos of it soon.  Here on the left you can see a solution we came up with for her tiny side yard.  We removed old concrete, installed decomposed granite and some older pavers she had, installed a cool soothing over-flow fountain and a wall of wooly pockets.  All of those spider plants were already hanging out in the garden so we just used them to dress up the wall.  I can now say that I’m sold on wooly pockets – they are so well made and easy to use.  The plants love being in them because they provide such a nice environment.
