It is officially springtime!  Spring is the perfect moment to celebrate the beauty of a garden.  Whether large or small, the gardens in our homes can delight us with new blooms and color combinations as the season progresses into the full splendor of summer. A spring garden may begin with delicate, subtle pastels and then blossom into a bright rainbow of colors as summer approaches. Having your own garden is one way to nurture the soul and be closer to nature. These California properties from Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage uniquely speak to hearts and minds with their own approach to landscaping, from lush lawns and stunning flower beds to manicured creations and artful native plantings. And of course, the homes themselves are dazzling in their own ways too.
