Coral Gables Garden
Geometric planting beds (parterres) in the front yard showcase annuals, perennials, and evergreen shrubs. A gorgeous purple-flowering
bougainvillea vine is trained against the home's front wall. The formality out front contrasts strikingly with the flowing
beds in back. This is a garden with two distinct faces.
