3401 Cabrillo Boulevard

The combination of sleek new architecture and contemporary garden design make this stop a must for anyone wanting to create a modern feeling that fits in with the existing neighborhood. The garden inspires oohs, aahs and even stopping and staring. It is reminiscent of a well-crafted handmade quilt, pleasing to the eye without screaming for attention.

Watering of cactus and fruit trees is minimal, done with drip and spray 3 days per week in summer and almost never in winter. Drought tolerant material replaced a large, unsightly front lawn. Delivery time and limited watering days have greatly reduced properties water needs. The landscaper, Doug Shemer of Groundswell, and the homeowners agree that responsible irrigation techniques need to be part of every new garden design.
