Courtyard Showcases Sansevieria Plants
This hilltop home and garden in Bel Air boldly pairs modern design with sustainable practices. As guests move from the courtyard to back of the house, they'll find various grasses, sculptural succulents and a grove of Eucalyptus trees -- all of which require little water and maintenance.
