In Mal­ibu, Cal­i­for­nia, a scene- mak­ing gar­den con­nects a mid­cen­tury home and guest­house.

ABOVE: To cre­ate a wel­com­ing space that con­nects the guest­house (shown here) with the pri­mary res­i­dence, de­signer Eric Bran­don Gomez de­signed eight-foot-wide stairs broad enough for two peo­ple to stroll up and down side by side. He then added ar­chi­tec­tural plants, like aloes and sages, which can with­stand drought and salt ac­cu­mu­la­tion. BE­LOW: Agave ‘Blue Flame’, a mul­ti­trunked Pachy­podium, and colum­nar Euphor­bia in­gens stand­ing tall to the right an­chor a sea of sil­very fo­liage: Westringia fru­ti­cosa ‘Smokey’, Senecio man­dralis­cae, and San­tolina.
