Lawn to Landscape


  1. This corner lot in Pasadena was surrounded on two sides by turf grass and old shrubs.
  2. We worked with the homeowners and licensed contractors to remove the grass and amend the soil organically. Soil was also moved around,  digging down to create small lakes (swales) and mounded up to create little hills (berms). Small rivers (trenches) connected gutter downspouts to the swales, so rainwater from the roof can stay in the garden and deep water the plants.
  3. Native and climate appropriate plants were planted throughout the garden.
