Steal This Look: A Small Container Garden Balcony in San Francisco

May 28, 2024

Here, we present the concept of a dry garden applied to an urban balcony. The project is located in Hayes Valley of San Francisco and is designed by Daniel Nolan, landscape designer and former in-house designer at Flora Grubb Gardens. The garden features a cohesive look created by way of “the repetition of specific plants in their containers and a muted color palette,” says Nolan.

Potted plants include crested Myrtillocactus (M. geometrizans cristata), Furcraea macdougalii, Aloe barberae, and snake plant Sansevieria trifasciata. Photograph from Dry Gardens courtesy of Rizzoli from Low-Water Landscapes: 8 Ideas for Dry Gardens, from Designer Daniel Nolan.
