Although, this garden tour happened a couple of weeks ago, I enjoyed it so much I really wanted to share my two favorite gardens with you. This first one, situated on three lots in Brentwood, was just gorgeous. From its “multi-purpose barn” to the layout of the vegetable garden to the many wonderful seating areas — I walked away with some beautiful ideas.

Last Sunday was the Pacific Palisades annual garden club tour. My first time on this tour was 9 years ago and it continues to be an inspiring tour. Below, are a couple of my favorites, both designed by Jay Griffith.
