GARDEN DESIGN – APRIL 2007
The work of Living Green's Davis Dalbok is featured in the April 2007 issue of Garden Design. The story profiles eight cutting-edge designers and what it takes "to make a style statement in a pot."
Davis Dalbok – Pushing Zones:As a horticulturist and founder of San Francisco design showroom and garden design firm Living Green, Davis Dalbok likes to say he "gardens with one foot in the tropics," meaning that he tends to spin a tropical look, even when the plants he designs with are not tropical. These two containers, sporting subtropical plants are a perfect example.
"Here the fishhooks are permanent, but the crocosmias are not," says Dalbok. "When the crocosmias are past bloom, we trade them out for daylilies or cymbidiums and plant them in the ground."

GARDEN DESIGN – FEBRUARY 2007
From the article of Garden Design's February 2007 issue, "Silk Route — Sculptural Houseplants That Bring the Garden Indoors Complement a Sophisticated Asian-Style Interior in the Heart of San Francisco,"
"Working hand in hand with Davis Dalbok of San Francisco's Living Green, which specializes in tropical and subtropical plantings, decorative objects and garden design, they created an Asian sanctuary of luxury, calm and grace."
