By designing our gardens with plants native to California, and other species native to Mediterranean climates we can reduce the consumption of irrigation water dramatically .  By using natives in particular, we create habitats for our wildlife,  bring bird song to our gardens and give ourselves gardens with reduced maintenance.   This project won the 2011 International APLD design award in planting design.  California natives were used to blend this property with the adjacent lot and provide for erosion control.
“You did a heck of a job on that property! We loved the job you did! We sold it in a day! It had sat for months before we bought it!”   Tom O’Keefe......testimonial
