Templeton Residence

Private Residence

Upon driving up to the residence, visitors are greeted with a series of dg paths and a grand display of native and Mediterranean plants. Some of the selections, like New Zealand Flax and Cape Rush, offer year-round interest, while the seasonal bloomers such as yarrow, create a profusion of color during their bloom period. Walking around to the other side of the house, the backyard reveals its vast expanse. On one end, a natural stone firepit and seating area await the perfect winter night. Above that sits a series of steps leading to a gazebo which overlooks the vineyards. Across the way, a large wooden pergola shades the patio – offering relief from the hot summer sun. Nearby, surrounded by California native plants, sits a quietly-bubbling boulder fountain. All the elements together create a landscape perfectly suited for every season.

Lake Park Native Garden

Lake Park Native Garden

First planted by the Atascadero Native Tree Association in 1992, this garden was established by members of the community. 25 years later, in 2017, a renovation project was designed and installed by Madrone in collaboration with the City of Atascadero, the Atascadero Mutual Water Company, and many other sponsors and volunteers. After some successful volunteer events, the Lake Park Native Garden now sits as an iconic display of California native plants.

Private Residence

This residence lies in the backcountry of San Miguel. The entry to the property features natural stone retaining walls and native plantings to create a warm welcome. The house has large lawns for little ones to play barefoot on, as well as plenty of space for larger gatherings, in addition to a series of planters showcasing a variety of native and Mediterranean plant species. Down below, an epic fenced-in play area is made an icon of the property. Climbing rocks, wooden playhouses, slides, and swings are shaded by large trees and cushioned by soft grasses and perennials – bringing a childhood dream to life.

Paso Robles Residence

Private Residence

The front yard of this landscape was transformed from an empty, barren space into a small oasis. The flagstone paving lends itself well to the natural landscape surroundings, and the urn fountain offers a delicate sound and sense of tranquility. The greens and golds found in the native plants also reflect the colors of the surrounding environment. Finally, the custom-cut steel gates finish off the elegant, natural vibe with a tree-branch style pattern. The backyard reflects the same materials and similar feeling of an oasis, with an infinity edge pool overlooking the vast mountainous landscape.

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.
