Plan & Design
Landscape design is the beginning stage. We’ll survey your property and create a base plan of the area. We always take your ideas and desires into consideration of the plan, and are ready to help provide you with a visually pleasing, money-saving yard. With your input and our expertise, we can design a preliminary plan of how your landscape will ultimately be laid out for the final product.
Reducing Turf Areas
Typically, grassy turf tends to use more water, and requires more work to maintain than considered necessary in the Los Angeles area.
Due to the amount of upkeep and local water shortages, many people are gravitating towards grassless yards over the traditional look. However, grass does not necessarily need to be eliminated, and can be incorporated into the xeriscaping process. We’ll help you determine if and where you’ll have turf in your new landscape.
Choosing Local Plants & Zones
An important principle of xeriscape landscaping is to source the plants and vegetation from the local area. While you can choose plants from other regions, not all are able to adapt to the change in climate and can die. Choosing drought tolerant plants native to Los Angeles county will ensure the longevity of your xeriscaped yard.
A few examples of Los Angeles native drought resistant plants used in xeriscaping are:
- Succulents & Cacti
- California Mountain Lilac
- Canyon Grey California Sagebrush
- Parry’s Nolina
- Variety of Herbs
