Take a visual tour of gardens and homes in one Pacific Coast area, the South Bay of Los Angeles County, which includes Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, and Redondo Beach. A distinctive feature of Southern California's beach communities is how often homeowners enclose their front yards. Because of the dense development in the residential neighborhoods adjacent to the ocean, some property lines have been clearly defined by fences, garden walls, and ornaments.
Here find compelling photographs that will inspire homeowners and gardeners who are looking to define their own outdoor spaces. Organized by the function of the fences and types of enclosures, this book also includes sidebars about the evolution and history of some unique property divisions and homeowner "stories."
