Orchard Village residence, Santa Clarita. After an extensive backyard remodel including a pool, hot tub and firepit, the owners were left with bare walls and a new planter box. The box also serves as seating for the firepit.

Lavender (Lavandula) is used as a basis because of its pleasant scent and long blooming season. Clematis will cover the bare walls without impinging on people’s seating space. Lamb’s ear (Stachys) and Flax lily (Dietes bicolor) fill in with additional color and texture.
