The Wave Garden (East Bay, CA)


Towards Pt. Richmond, a neighborhood of houses with bay views, but also close to the nearby refineries, harbored a spectacular garden.

 The Wave Garden was developed as a private garden, but is open as public space to visitors -- the best sort of shared space.

Strongly envisioned hardscape is softened by drifts of vegetation, with dramatic contrasts in textures and colors.

  2. I'm really enjoying seeing the posts about this garden. I was there, but I was so hot and fried I didn't enjoy it much. I love that last photo, the chartreuse and the purple with the teal-colored whale's tale sculpture.

  3. Great pictures, especially the long view of the path in the second to last photo. Very apt one sentence summary of this garden.

I enjoy hearing from fellow nature lovers and gardeners. Let me know your thoughts.
