Gallery of Before + Afters: Part 2


Because a picture is worth a thousand words, here's our latest in Before + Afters. Some of these are still fresh and new and need another year or so to really shine, but I couldn't wait to show them to you- so here they are.

Mission Hills Lawn Loser
Large corner lot goes from lawn and more lawn to curb appeal pollinator haven- boulders, creek bed, flagstone path, CA natives, Mediterraneans and pollinators and color color color!

BEFORE. Side Yard.

In the side yard we kept this delicious citrus tree row but swapped out the dying ornamental plums with CA lilac, native sages and grasses and made a sweet little flagstone path to navigate from gate to front














Normal Heights Charmer

We had a lot of fun designing this project as the property and historic home already had such wonderful bones. We designed these columns and fence to tie the landscape in with the architecture and visually separate the front yard from street. We built car arbors on the new driveway and reused all the broken concrete from demolished driveway as urbanite paths and patios in the backyard. We installed a functional dry creek bed that manages the stormwater on the slightly sloped site by percolating and diverting it toward the fruit and and veggie garden beyond the fence.

We had a new deck with multiple "rooms" come off of the back door and gorgeous custom lights and columns to weave the architecture back into the landscape. Due to scale of project the planting was phased and will be completed later this Spring.

Clean + Contemporary in Point Loma

Clients have been living in this Pt Loma home for a few decades and never touched the landscape. We redesigned the entry to be more inviting and easy to navigate. On the side yard we removed the weedy pepper trees and brought in boulders, creek bed, arbutus and ceanothus along with grasses and succulents and sages. Client wanted to keep existing birds of paradise which we divided and weaved throughout and will really pop with its orange against the purple of the  mexican and cleveland sages. Note- images taken only a week after planting.
