The Historic Rubin Garden in 2016
See what the Rubin Garden looked like in the past:
Some great details about the Rubin Garden:
In order to conserve water, Marilyn and Sherwin stopped watering their front yard for one year, and of course, everything died. They personally removed their Bermuda turf and were approved for the L.A. County Turf Removal Rebate before the money ran out.
After attending the Theodore Payne Native Plant Tour, they got a good idea of what type of plants they wanted for their new drought tolerant landscape which was installed in July of 2015. Anna's Hummingbirds, Swallowtails and Monarch's are frequent quests as well as skunks and raccoons. They love looking at their landscape every time they come home.
Dymondia, Dwarf Red Flax, Blue Oat Grass, Strawberry Tree, Crepe Myrtle Tree, New Zealand Tea Tree, Lantana and Pink Ivy Geranium.
