This local designer did Beechwood Restaurant, Alibi Room and Rose Café – what fun to get a peek into what he designed for himself!

The landscaping was inspired 18 months ago by low water consumption, dry climate aesthetic, natural movement from off-shore breezes and traffic. Agaves were collected and donated by neighbors or harvested and reused from the site, grasses were planted along a busy street for movement and to provide a visual buffer to street.

Berms were added for the small lawn in front for capturing water so it only needs water twice a week (3 minutes for each zone) in the summer and not at all in the winter.

The plant selections are California Native and indigenous drought tolerant with working gardens and small crops in the rear and on side yards.
