Letting Go of the Lawn in La Jolla by Torrey Pines Landscape Company

These La Jolla home owners were ready to make the move and get rid of the expansive water-guzzling lawn in their front yard. We were delighted to help them with the design and installation because we specialize in creating lush landscapes that are water efficient. The final product speaks for itself!

Harry Thompson, the company's owner, created an enchanting space with intertwining flagstone garden paths. The Gaura lindeheimeri, which grows from a deep tap root making it drought tolerant, adds an air of whimsy. While the Anigozanthos or Kangaroo Paw gives the garden a real punch of color. He also re-designed the entry, incorporating a brick walkway that looks as if it has always been there. Now, the homeowner has a true garden that invites her out to enjoy the flowers and the beauty year round while still conserving water.
