The landscape at a residence in Napa was updated to be less maintenance and less labor intensive in Phase 1 of the landscape improvements. Large planting beds that required constant weeding and pruning were removed and replaced with clean DG beds. The planting palette around the house was reduced to a single species of olive trees. The native grasses and perennials in the surrounding landscape that used to grow right up to the house were pushed back through the introduction of new 4’ wide concrete ‘apron’/walkway; not only is it a cleaner look and less to maintain, but it eliminates snake and rodent habitat immediately adjacent to the house. Landscape lighting was added along the new walk from the parking area and in the young olive trees.
