Around Southern California, landscape designer Scott Shrader is known for civilized, amenity-filled gardens that are tailor-made for life outside. At his own home, a 1,600-square-foot Regency-style cottage in West Hollywood, Shrader transformed a cramped, 24-by-45-foot brick-and-concrete backyard into this stunning escape.
Custom French doors lead to Scott Shrader’s back garden, framed by two olive trees just outside. Garden details include Walter Lamb chairs, a table made from reclaimed scaffolding, and exterior hardscaping crafted with vintage Guatemalan pavers. Shrader designed the bronze center feature, titled Flight of Icarus, with sculptor Simon Toparovsky.
