Some of the plantings, like this one near the tasting room ‘house’, is shaded during mid-day by an adjacent high roofed plaza area. Some of this must receive some water as well supporting the Aralia in the background here and the oddly beautiful Pittosporum patulum. The bed across the walkway includes Gardenia. While I enjoy the xeric, more outlying parts of this landscape, it is common practice for gardens to locate more intensively managed landscapes adjacent to more frequented areas and homes, providing more interest there while still providing a higher quality landscape further away that remains more manageable.
