Marvelous collection of plant forms and colors and the space and place are great, in scale with the surroundings and putting “fun” into fundamental.
The clients at this Culver City, CA, site are creative professionals with a beautiful, classic Spanish bungalow. They like to garden and don’t mind a little maintenance. They wanted to lower their carbon footprint and water bill by switching to a drip irrigation system and using California climate-friendly

APLD 2017 SILVER AWARD

This Los Angeles home sat on a hill with existing, but deteriorating terraces. The owner dreamed of a welcoming, more usable backyard where his grandchildren could gather and have fun, as well as allow him to expand his edible garden. Working with existing features and plants, designer Debbie Gliksman of Urban Oasis Landscape Design created an inviting Mediterranean garden with warm rock, a multilevel stream ending in a fish pond, and CorTen planters for vegetable gardening.

10 GARAGE CONVERSIONS

Alexandra Belgun
A simple garage has more potential than you can ever imagine. With a little effort and imagination, you can turn a cold and sober place in a welcoming and peaceful area…or not. The final result depends on your wishes! The options are endless but, unfortunately, you still have to take into consideration various aspects. One of them is the amount of space you have.

LANDSCAPE CONTRACTOR
FENCES, WALLS & GATES

Michael Miyamoto
Even though the owner of a So Cal home was an avid vegetable gardener, his back yard was neglected and in a state of disrepair. So, he decided to do a major makeover, and hired Debbie Gliksman, owner of Urban Oasis Landscape, to do the job. Some of the obstacles included a layer of blacktop that was left over from the client’s children’s basketball-playing days. The existing concrete retaining walls were also “forlorn”.

Drought Tolerant Dream
Landscape designer Debbie Gliksman’s, own 1940’s-era house included a swimming
pool, but nothing else met her creative taste level. To start, she laid a new red flagstone
terrace that complements her home’s stucco facade, setting it in large irregular shapes

for a rustic look. To be a good eco-citizen, she used the lifted concrete to build a curving
bench and low stone walls. The neutral gray balances

GREAT GARDEN IDEAS FROM THE WEST’S BEST GARDENS

Brenzelk
To update the landscape around her backyard pool, designer Debbie Gliksman (Urban Oasis Landscape Design) removed solid concrete paving and replaced it with flagstones set on gravel. Spaces between the new pavers keep the surface permeable. But rather than dumping the concrete, Gliksman used the broken pieces to build a bench and raised beds that have the look of natural stone.

FIRE PIT BUILDING

Alli Rael & Andrew Soto
One practical way for landscape contractors to add warmth and inviting light to any landscape is to build a gas or wood-burning fire pit...
At this SoCal residence, contractor Stanislaw Krupa installed the landscape designed by Debbie Gliksman of Urban Oasis Landscape Design. The gas line had already been run, so it was just a matter of placing the custom ‘Simplicity Edge’ fire bowl.

GOING GREEN

Beth Hyatt
Clients may be asking you how their landscape could be more sustainable or whether there’s enough space to feature more usable areas, and the short and sweet answer is yes.

APLD MERIT AWARD 2014

An outdated landscape comprised of raised brick beds, worn-out concrete, and overwhelming plantings presented a challenge to Gliksman: how to update the space and make use of an awkwardly-laced pool, while staying environmentally friendly and keeping within a small budget? She began by replacing the uninspired paving with luxurious, rich red flagstone to add color and warmth to the garden. The perimeter walls were painted a light

FROM DETACHED GARAGE TO FIRST SOLO STUDIO

Each time Debbie Gliksman's daughter returned home from college, Gliksman's two younger boys at home would have to bunk together to free up a room. She knew the
family needed an extra room but didn't want to move. So, before Lianna moved back
after college, Gliksman, a designer, thought outside the box of her own house and
looked across the way to the family's detached garage, which she converted into a chic and cozy studio.

PLANTING DESIGN: A nice transformation using water-wise plants. An interesting blend of planting layers and colors make a successful scheme.
RESIDENTIAL DESIGN OVER $100,000: Creative use of swaths of plants to support this Tarzana hilltop. Good transformation of the pool space, and highly textural plants give the design energy. The plan reveals the designer’s intentions and supports many of the detailed decisions.

HER OWN BACKYARD

Debbie Gliksman designs outdoor spaces with the future in mind. “Although I try to give
my gardens the good bones to last indefinitely, plants are not like furniture that stays as
you bought it,” explains Gliksman, landscape designer and owner of Urban Oasis
