DESIGN GOAL: Simplify the task of caretaking for landscaping and blend private space through to open space

  • plant low-water California Natives
  • install CA Gold pebble for all landscaping surfaces, incorporating boulders for depth & structure
  • blend new flagstone pathways with existing hardscaping

What is a native plant?

California’s native plants evolved here over a very long period, and are the plants which the first Californians knew and depended on for their livelihood. These plants have co-evolved with animals, fungi, and microbes, to form a complex network of relationships. They are the foundation of our native ecosystems.”
