Design 2000 is an occasional series on the many aspects of design and the men and women of California who are shaping its impact on our lives. * Home gardens have changed dramatically in the last 20 years. Neat lawns surrounded by ground-covering gazanias and tidy junipers have given way to variety and drama in plantings and to more natural and thoughtful design. This is especially true in backyards, but sometimes even out front.

Occasionally designers produce work that changes the way we see. This is the case with Nancy Goslee Power. In the 27 years since she arrived from New York, she has rewritten the rule about what may constitute a frontyard, first enclosing it, then excavating it for good measure. She has used aloe, agave, lavender and olive trees so dramatically that the blue-gray western plant palette now belongs to this Easterner.

Decomposed granite may be only a step above ordinary dirt, but this humblest of paving materials is seen in some very grand gardens--from the golden estates of the 1920s by designers such as Florence Yoch, to the most contemporary gardens by designers such as Nancy Goslee Power, currently working on the Walt Disney Concert Hall--which will have decomposed granite paths. Landscape professionals love decomposed granite because it looks so indigenous to the garden, but can you do it yourself?

THE GARDENS OF CALIFORNIA: Four Centuries of Design From Mission to Modern by Nancy Goslee Power (Clarkson N. Potter: $50; 196 pp.) California gardens--from estates to more simple affairs--have long been neglected by garden writers mesmerized by English, Italian and Eastern landscapes.

For almost 100 years after this house was built as a gardener's cottage on a sprawling Montecito estate, its grounds remained oddly bare. But good things come to those who wait, as the saying goes, and the house was finally and handsomely landscaped three years ago. The garden began to take shape in 1985, after interior designer Ann James bought the house for its late-Victorian charm. Though she built a fence to keep in the family dog, she was careful to specify posts with finials and lattice.

I love old-fashioned flowers that lean and lie down," says actress Julie Newmar, whose Brentwood yard looks like a classic garden print come to life. The full but floppy white flowers of Madame Alfred Carriere, a Noisette rose dating from 1879, hang from an entry arbor. Madame Isaac Pereire, with its deep pink flowers, anchors a far corner.

A bold building can demand a lot from a garden: Gutsy plants, paths and walls must fall in step with the architecture but also speak for themselves. For garden designer Nancy Goslee Power, that was the case with this unusual Westside residence by San Francisco architect Mark Mack, who created an inner courtyard between a street-facing studio and the wedge-shaped house. Power echoed Mack's geometry with a wedge-shaped perennial bed heaped with spiked, strapped and spilling plants.

LAWNS PROVIDE a garden not only with the feeling of openness but also with a way to walk from one side of the yard to the other. They are, however, consummate consumers of water--especially in the summer. In her own garden in Santa Monica, garden designer Nancy Goslee Power planted two kinds of the drought-tolerant Mediterranean herb santolina instead of a lawn. The gray of the checkerboard pattern is Santolina chamaecyparissus , and the green is S. virens .
