PS: Your backyard is adorable. What tips do you have for keeping a great outdoor space in a city?
KFP: A lot of hard work! When we moved in, there was nothing in our backyard, and we both dreamed of a tropical garden. We had no budget for a landscape architect so I got to work researching, planning, and plotting. The style is "Tropi-Cali," which means a California take on classic tropical.
We are lucky to have some earth, but I have seen such beautiful outdoor spaces using planters. It definitely does not take a big garden to achieve a green space in the city.
