Come on in
Originally, this house was less than welcoming. Huge pines hid the Del Mar, California, front door, and getting from the driveway
to the entry was a pain—after parking, you had to return to the sidewalk, skirt a sea of juniper, and climb a steep staircase.
Landscape designer Kendra Berger (revivelandscapedesign.com) removed the pines and replaced the junipers with a garden of carex, geranium, and bright Scotch moss; a row of low-growing
purple phormium and a single showy cordyline punctuate the palette of lime and dark greens. And now, broad stairs lead hospitably
from the driveway straight to the front door.
