A Garden Book is in the Works

Sharing our knowledge is Hope Gardens main goal and always has been. To that end, I am working on a gardening book/memoir to share the experiences of my last 7 years gardening in Los Angeles. A garden tell-all if you will, and you'll be the first to hear about it.

Education

A big part of Hope Garden's mission is to educate the public on sustainable gardening and to inspire everyone to have a garden. We want to share the wisdom of how food is grown with both adults and children. If you would like our help instructing your family, school, group or community give us a call or shoot us a text at 323-493-5177.

A New Dream

Gardening is such a wonderful therapy and at Hope Gardens we would like to take that sentiment to the limit. We are working on plans for a facility that would allow therapists and patients to work in a safe, beautiful and peaceful environment tailored just for them and maintained by our professional gardeners.

Here in this recent install we use complimentary and contrasting colors with unique heights and shapes. Let’s take […]

Historic Sperling Nursery closing

Sometimes life is very hard to understand. Finding a silver lining or figuring out a place to file it is pointless. It just sucks. With tragic irony, the beloved Joni Mitchell is speechless and recently re-hospitalized in Los Angeles after an aneurysm. I can’t help but acknowledge this as I tell you that the Sperling […]

Don’t Terminate

I’ve had an incredible response to my post about those gravel fields passing for California-friendly gardens which are being installed everywhere.  A lot of people started to question what they REALLY wanted their yards to look like…how they wanted them to function…and how those decisions would impact the natural world around them. But I think […]

Drought-Tolerant Landscaping

Hope Gardens promotes a more environmentally-conscious approach to landscaping. Fortunately, this can still mean a colorful garden, full of contrast and wonder. Adding paths and patios of DG and gravel as well as dry riverbeds and artificial grass elevate the design and usability of your landscape. Here’s some photos taken from our drought-tolerant yards both […]
