Green walls warm up the side alley in a San Francisco landscape designed by Monica Viarengo

Mission Accomplished: A Modern Mosaic Garden in SF, by Monica Viarengo - Gardenista

Tropical Landscape Bed - This lush bed contains only 4 plants. The contrast in heights & color give it a well-balanced look. All of the plants will work for zone 9 (except palm-see below for alternatives), but a very cold night or frost may cause some to have foliage damage or die back to the ground-returning in Spring. Christmas Palm Tree [Queen, Foxtail, and King best suited for zone 9]. Elephant Ear (Colocasia). Hawaiian Ti Plants (Cordyline Terminalis). Philodendron (Xanadu).

Good example of layering - can use these sorts of plants in most of your garden beds. So you've got tall palms at the back, the Elephant ear adds drama, the cordylines (red ones) colour, and the lower philodendron covers the ground.

Outdoor built in seating idea. This would look great with a wood flooring on the lower level patio. LOVE the slant for a more comfortable built-in.
