Found space

Landscape architect Katherine Spitz ( added thick panels of cranberry-hued glass and a lodgepole pine “fence,” both anchored in concrete, along with a photinia hedge to create a sense of seclusion. Orange epidendrums add color below the red new photinia leaves, while silvery dymondia, feathery Mexican weeping bamboo, and mounded pittosporum offer blocks of leafy texture.
