Palm Springs Modernism Week


Steel Life just returned from Palm Springs Modernism Week, where we sponsored the Modern Garden tour. In addition to a phenomenal variety of lectures, tours and cocktail parties, we spent plenty of time at CAMP (Community and Meeting Place), where the landscape was dressed up with beautiful, drought-tolerant plants from Mountain States Wholesale Nursery. Sales representative and horticulturalist, Wendy Proud, led the Mountain States crew in the plant placement of their demonstration garden, and generously donated drought-resistant plants to fill our planters. She also hosted an intimate cocktail reception at a private garden for her clients and others in the green industry — a perfect finale!


Photo Shoot with Zenaida Sengo


The lovely San Francisco artist, author and horticulturalist Zenaida Sengo recently brought her talents to Steel Life.  Zenaida styles interiors of Flora Grubb Gardens, and authored/art directed Air Plants: The Curious World of Tillandsias. We are thrilled  with her photos of the Jack planter and hope to collaborate with the West Coast talent again soon!
