So, Hollywood legend Bruce Willis clearly shares broad knowledge and passion for plants.

What Does Bruce Willis’ Garden Look Like?

Unlike many Hollywood celebrities, Bruce Willis does not have official public social media accounts.

So, it is hard to get a glimpse of his luxe garden in the $9.8 million Brentwood Park mansion.

Nonetheless, the iconic, picturesque black and white mansion features a large front yard garden with a wide range of evergreen plants.

Right next to the black gate at the entrance, Bruce has tall trees that could be native to Los Angeles.

Likewise, the border of the curvy entryway to the house is decorated with flowering low-growing herbs. The lavish green lawn also features some tall trees, possibly berry or Olive trees.

Besides that, many tall trees native to the USDA 9-10 zones have beautifully outlined the house area.
