Planting Los Angeles

It’s great to see how other people in other places do familiar things like some of the planting in these images. On the front of boutique Hotel Palihotel on Melrose Avenue there are these rows of pots. They really add a bit of colour to the hotel and makes it stand out on the street.


At Santa Monica on 2nd Street, near the Huntley Hotel, the way the fig trees are trained and pruned creates these weird and wonderful canopies that give you the sense that they are in perpetual motion.

The planting on the pergola structures at a bus stop on Colorado Avenue, Santa Monica, will conceal the structure in no time as the structures itself dates.
