This week the garden heads to Coachella Valley. This corner lot was discovered during a photo shoot for the Coachella Valley Water Project. It is located in the town of Palm Desert, not far from Palm Springs. In desert landscape design, dramatic colors and bold textures are paramount. The vivid red of bougainvillea and the rich hues of purple lantana provide an accent to the overwhelming blue sky. Yucca rostrate and Agave Americana provide contrasting textures, and the Mesquite tree connects them. We like the woven walkway and the eye-catching lattice on the side of the hotel. .
