7. Start your snail patrols Watch out for snails at this time of year as they love munching on the leaves of Liriope (pictured), renga renga lilies (Arthropodium cirratum), Hosta, daylilies (Hemerocallis) and many other perennials. To avoid using chemicals, gather up snails in a bucket on wet evenings and feed to the birds, or cover with soapy water to kill them.Tip: If you are a time-poor gardener, try to buy environmentally friendly snail bait that won’t harm pets or native wildlife.

Plants function as architectural details. A screen of fern pine (Podocarpus gracilior) provides privacy from next-door neighbors, adding a lush softness to the garden at a reduced weight. The planters along the deck’s periphery are built into the structure. They’re shallow, only a foot or two deep, and they frame the deck with lush, drought-tolerant Mediterranean plants. Planting bed off the deck: Wire plant (Corokia cotoneaster), bicolor fortnight lily (Dietes bicolor), beach strawberry (Fragaria chilloensis), blue oat grass (Helictotrichon sempervirens), sapphire lobelia (Lobelia ‘Sapphire’), New Zealand iris (Libertia peregrinans) Planter to right of steps: Jade plant (Crassula ovata), Cape Blanco stonecrop (Sedum spathifolium ‘Cape Blanco’) Scott Lewis Landscape Architecture The planters integrated with the steps are made of copper-infused fiberglass. They are extremely lightweight and will develop the attractive patina of an old penny as they age. Lewis planted giant lilyturf (Liriope gigantea) in the planters, which fill out the hardscape and continue the linear language of the fence and deck. Kangaroo treebine (Cissus antarctica) climbs up the fence.
