Garden Gallery: Topanga Canyon Cactus Garden

Cactus gardens are somewhat out of the question here in Massachusetts (at least it would be very limited and many varieties would need to be heavily sheltered), so I am understandably fascinated with the foreignness of designing a garden like this.

I can hardly imagine what it must be like to try and place plants with such hugely sculptural qualities in a way that will someday be pleasing (once they have all come into their full form).   It feels like it might be more an effort in curating a sculpture gallery than a garden.

These images were all taken by stars4ester during a recent visit.  She reports,  “The garden appears to be open to anyone who would like to walk its pathways and take in its wonderful sites. (But with a warning, the traffic at this corner is very busy, fast moving, and loud!)”.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
