Baja Garden

This was a major garden remodel where we eliminated as much as we added. non-native plant material was removed for regional natives. the new landscape features included: a pool remodel, an outdoor shower and new terrace. new fencing and a realignment created privacy. off-the-shelf industrial materials were use throughout the site. the hardscape geometry we developed here was extended to the next phases. the woven screen wall was made from flashing from the big-box home improvement store, reinforcing bars were used as the posts. the tilted wall at the shower became an repetitive element through the site that connects the different gardens.
