LGLA was engaged to renew the landscape for a 1910 Mission Revival house designed by Heineman and Heineman. The first step was to develop a Cultural Landscape Report that examined the two periods of significance: the original Craftsman-era landscape, and the 1970s-era swimming pool and landscape, designed by noted resort landscape architect Courtland Paul. Extensive historical research allowed the team to develop a design that balanced the two periods of significance while making the landscape more resilient and suitable for contemporary outdoor living.

  • Design approach and materials conform to Secretary of the Interior Standards

  • Stormwater retention minimizes runoff, allowing for onsite groundwater recharge during rainstorms, and provides a scenic dry creek

  • Planting design is compatible with California’s evolving climate and new water restrictions

  • New walkways connect the numerous gardens, providing multiple areas of use and viewpoints

  • A new fire feature and spa are sited to complement and enhance the swimming pool
