Living the San Francisco Dream

No space for a garden in San Francisco? Get creative!

San Francisco has wonderful styles of architecture and some great living spaces. However, in a city of such a small size, finding room for a garden can be challenging.

Sometimes, one just has to be creative, like the owner of this house on Octavia Street in the Pacific Heights-Cow Hollow area of town. Go vertical!

Vertical gardening in San Francisco

Not only is this easy-care garden pleasing to the eye, and adds a decorative touch to the entry, the back garden, which likely is quite small, can be put to other gardening uses.

Being creative can result in works of beauty!
