Private, compact work center.

A tight lot made it difficult to find a spot for stashing garden equipment and installing a garden work center for home owners in Hermosa Beach. To solve the problem, they enclosed a compact 7- by 9-foot space bounded by their driveway, a neighbor's walkway, and an alley.

Plank fencing on the walk and driveway sides is topped with ready-made panels of redwood lattice. On the walkway side, coral-flowered passion vine (Passiflora jamesonii) climbs on the lattice.

The shed bordering the alley holds pots and soil, watering cans, hoses, and other garden tools. A sturdy potting bench fits between the shed and the gate to the driveway.

A lattice screen supporting evergreen clematis (see below) blocks the view into the potting area from the front entry.

Design was by Dennis Wallace and Alberto Estrella.
