Top 10 Garden Styles

California's many climates, its cultural heritage, and its varied terrain help determine its garden styles.

Influences from the Mediterranean, the tropics, and the Orient have also inspired us. And from these collective influences have emerged architectural styles-with gardens to match-that are unique to California. Pepper or citrus trees shade the paved courtyards of the Spanish mission home. The sun-washed Tuscan villa looks out on olive trees growing among drifts of fragrant lavender. Scarlet bougainvillea drapes the sand-colored stucco walls of the desert hacienda. And the garden of the casual beach bungalow is carpeted with brilliant crimson ice plants and grasses. Although mixing and matching elements from different garden styles can be effective, if you want your garden to look well planned, you'll need a clear and unifying theme.

Choose a style that is compatible with the architecture of your house and appropriate for your climate. Then design the garden to accommodate the various functions you have in mind. Our Top 10 garden styles for California can help get you started.
