Landscape designer Beth Mullins gave this tiny San Francisco garden a lush look by planting tiers of greenery. Wispy Pittosporum tenuifolium ‘Silver Sheen’ mixes with fountains of palm grass (Setaria palmifolia) and screens of feathery Podocarpus gracilior. Succulents (Aeonium ‘Jolly Green’ and Agave attenuata), mounding blue Festuca glauca ‘Elijah Blue’, and tufted green mondo grass fill in the understory.
