Southwestern Wine Country | San Miguel, CA

The owners of this San Miguel property desired a landscape to complement their hacienda-style residence, set in the vineyards of North County wine country. The large site created opportunities for multiple landscape areas, all connected by a winding pathway. A southwest-themed residence entry guides a visitor up the driveway a lush entrance. The food garden encompasses an orchard and raised beds surrounded by custom-designed fencing and an arched gateway. An entertaining area includes a pool deck and lawn, while a tree grove provides shady respite for hot summer days.

Sea Bluff Vista

Sea Bluff Vista

Sea Bluff Vista | Shell Beach, CA

This mid-century modern residence sits ocean bluff-side, where the physical embodiment of crisp, salty air finds its way into the landscape. A landscape treatment of low-maintenance succulents, grasses, paths, and ground covers is placed deliberately to ease the transition between a modern interior and a coastal exterior. It also features a beautiful olive tree, and plants designed to silhouette against the garden walls.

Winner of the CLCA Beautification Award for Small Residential Landscape in 2011, this fascinating landscape makes the most of a tight situation.
