Southern Californians know planning a garden that can withstand drought conditions isn’t easy. To get the most out of your garden, don’t wait until spring to start planting. Grab your shovel and start digging this month. Typically, November yields 10 percent of our annual rainfall. Our soil temperatures are still warm, which makes it an ideal time to get out there and plant!
Start your drought-tolerant garden by testing your irrigation system. Make sure all lines are clear and everything is working efficiently before you do your planting. Having your system in place will help you plan your garden.

Since opening its Beverly Hills luxury department store in 1994, Barneys New York has been a staple for the fashion-forward residents of Southern California. But like fashion, design trends change and a fresh perspective is needed to stay current. Steven Harris Architects was called upon to bring that fresh perspective to the recent renovation of the Beverly Hills location. Both the first and fifth floors have experienced a chic remodel. Included in the beauty department makeover is a new location on the lower level featuring 9,000 square feet of cosmetics, the addition of Crème de La Mer and Mila Moursi spa treatment rooms, and a Blow Bar by Valery Joseph.
