Hamm-Alvarez Residence


The clients required a new planting design in keeping with the water restrictions California is now facing. The existing lawn area was removed and a plant palette consisting of low water native and mediterranean species was used incorporating many of the cacti the clients had collected over the years. An existing orchard was under planted with native meadow plants (plant photos below), new seating areas were developed (above left photo) and a native willow hut was installed as a playhouse for their daughter.
