Conroy Residence

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 modern interior and 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-2011, this fascinating landscape makes the most of a tight situation.

Law Estate Wines

When visitors meet the gates of Law Estate Wines, large swaths of purple sage and bright red Everett’s Choice fuchsia are there to greet them. Through the simple, yet striking, weathered steel gates, the drive up to the tasting room offers gorgeous views of the surrounding hillscape. Once at the top, the main landscape feature becomes incredible apparent: a massive corten steel planter filled with rows and rows of mass-planted California native and Mediterranean plant species spanning all the way up the stairs to the entry of the tasting room. Once at the top of the stairs, visitors can look down on all the plant rows from above, and enjoy the plantings and seating area on the upper patio.

This incredible boutique tasting room, perched on a hilltop with breath-taking views of Paso Robles, features a permeable-paver patio (for the Oak’s sake!), dry-stack seat walls and a plant palette both low-maintenance and perfectly complementary to this outstanding hidden gem of a winery.

Miller Residence

This award-winning property features waterfalls of locally-sourced stone in front and back, flagstone patios, incredible views, raised vegetable planters, fruit trees and berry vines. It is a prime example of sustainably turning the site constraint of a steep hillside into an opportunity for a peaceful, mountain retreat.

Stanwyck Residence

Approaching this residence, the plant-lined driveway leads to an entry island which deflects headlights and sets up an entry experience. The beautifully planted entry garden, with oaks, olives, melaleuca, and a colorful variety of drought-tolerant shrubs and grasses accentuate the craftsman details of the entry (designed and built by Luhr Construction). The backyard continues the theme, with the added elements of a straw bale seat-wall and deck. A paver patio completes the outdoor living area, and connects to the small lawn, with panoramic views of San Luis Obispo.
