From small-scale to large-scale, and from aesthetic to functional
Removed 2,500 square feet of Grass. Planted four box Kentia palms, two box Arenga Palms, three box coconut Queen Palms,. one Ravnea Palm, one Chamaedorea Palm, two Australian Bottle Palms, several blue and green Cycads, and about ten varied Bromeliad species. We installed custom tech drip irrigation to the new plantings as well as replacing the dated sprinkler system with drip as well. We installed 1,700 square feet of the high-end artificial turf and a1,000 square foot of Desert Gold decomposed granite planter with cycads boulders and succulents, and mulch islands with rare palms and bromeleads.
Removed 1,000 square feet of dead grass and weeds. Corrected the slope, installed 300 square feet of recycled Artificial Turf, Western Brown Gravel, and DG pads to extend the Driveway and make a planter for future succulent and cycad planting.
Removed existing plants. Due to the fact that this is a south facing slope against a brick wall it gets very hot on this planter. I chose to plant hardy succulents and pink jasmine to grow on the wall, along with installing drip irrigation and mulch. This client had problems with sprinklers in the planters around the house as there was damage the paint, we installed drip in these planters as well.
