Offering Custom Garden Design
Get to know us and
Our approach to landscape design and installation utilizes basic principles of the ‘Watershed Approach’. Every outdoor space can be treated as its own watershed and have high and low points which allow for capture of water flow. Our emphasis is creating sustainable gardens that encourage habitat, conserve resources and improve soil retention while improving the functionality of the garden. Our plant selection is primarily California and Mediterranean-climate native plants from regions with similar weather patterns to our own here on the central coast of California. These areas include South Africa, New Zealand and Australia
- Water Conservation
We are minimizing the use of water in our designs and projects through less turf and more climate appropriate plants. We install rain sensors on all irrigation systems and do everything we can to capture and keep runoff water on the property.
- Responsible Products
We use point source drip irrigation for all planting areas – Netafim and Landscape Products. We use low voltage LED Lighting – Vista, FX Luminaire and SPJ Lighting. We use OMRI rated compost, mycorrrhizal inoculum and Kelloggs organic products.
- Drought Resistance
We purchase Mediterranean-climate and California Native drought resistant plants from Monterey Bay, Lakeside, Drought Resistant and Rana Creek and Western Tree Nurseries
- Custom Design & Planning
We understand Monterey County and Carmel City Planning and Building codes and the process necessary to design and plan accordingly. We will obtain your approval and permit to start your project. MAWA (Maximum Applied Water Allowance) calculations are done when required.
