Previously covered with lawn and lacking privacy, this West Hollywood front yard is now a livable space with creative screening. Landscape architect Katherine Spitz (katherinespitzassociates.com) 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.
