Marina del Rey

The primary emphasis at this Marina del Rey house was on refreshing the plant palette, and chief among the priorities was removal of the underperforming, water intensive lawn areas. Introducing a new plant palette also provided the opportunity to realign several of the beds and paths and, perhaps most significantly, to widen the arrival walkway. A large existing Ficus tree defines the front of the property, and the challenge was to incorporate plants that would thrive in the shade- contributing to the tropical character that the client desired- while being mindful of water use.
