Gardens on Great Highway

The lower Great Highway is a three mile stretch of road where San Francisco meets the Pacific Ocean.  Here are some sweet gardens on the Great Hwy within a couple blocks of our home.

In our neighborhood, as outer Outer Sunset as you can get, there are no green grassy front yards…mostly they are hardscaped aka concrete and pavement.  Fortunately, many dwellers here have elevated their curb appeal with containers full of shrubs, perennials, and succulents.

Some neighbors have gone so far that they have broken up the city sidewalks in order to have small guerrilla gardens.

These succulent container gardens are a sample of what you may see strolling in our hood.
