Notes:
The Garden of Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Mallace (formerly known as Las Terrazas) is situated on two terraces of a penthouse; each terrace which received southern exposure, is about four hundred square feet. The terrace gardens were designed using a combination of Mediterranean and drought-tolerant plants. The first terrace is planted with boxed rosemary, white oleander, citrus, and pomegranate trees and plumbago plants and a variety of geraniums. In Anduze pots are miniature lemon, blood orange, and kumquat trees. Additionally a copper urn was converted in to a fountain. The second terrace, off of the living and dining room, is trellised for privacy with variegated ivy and angle winged Jasmine. Potted fig, kumquat, lemon, and miniature orange trees are in keeping with the Mediterranean theme.
Persons associated with the garden include: Tobias and Alejandro Hernandez (gardeners, 2005-)
