Project Portfolio

Here are some projects we’re working on with before & after pictures!

  • Lake Balboa front yard - AFTER

Encino – a single family home South of the Blvd with 3,000 SF of turf removal including a front parkway and rear hillside with views, a rock garden installed, and planted with a mix of California Friendly plants using the “Cash for Grass” DWP rebate

Lake Balboa CORNER lot – a single family corner-lot home with 1,800 SF of turf removal including 2 large parkways, a decomposed granite path and sitting area installed, and planted with a mix of California Friendly plants using the “Cash for Grass” DWP rebate

Reseda – a small gated community home with a narrow east-facing yard with part shade with 800 SF of winter soil prep thru a ‘lasgna mulch’ method

Lake Balboa – front yard & parkway of a single family home with turf removal, soil “lasagna prepped”, and planted with a mix of California Friendly plants using the “Cash for Grass” DWP rebate

Calabasas – front slope, and parkway of a single family home with rain gutters re-routed to water the garden, a rock garden and decomposed granite path installed, and the existing dirt enriched for a mix of California Friendly plants

Newbury Park – a large 1800SF frontyard of dead grass with an existing oak & birch trees, and a large drainage depression thru the center.  We built a dry creek bed, re-planted some dwarf palms, put in drip-line irrigation, and used redwood bark mulch. The new plant palette is: a silver sheen border with the neighbor, society garlic, white lantana, blue fescue, and purple fountain grass.

Pico/Robertson – A steeply sloped front yard and parkway of approximately 800 SF covered with turf was converted including a DG pathway for trash cans roll-out and low water plants with mulch on a tight budget.  The owner used DWP rebates & the HOA required design approval which was accomplished efficiently in one meeting!

Montecito Heights – A small turf yard on a sloped street was converted including Theodore Payne native & adapted plants on drip irrigation system, a rain capture dry creek, and breaking solid paths to DG.  This yard qualified for DWP rebates.
