Howard-Greene- Central Coast Landscape

This central coast landscape came with some challenges and inspirations that influenced the end design. Drainage issues led to the creation of a rain garden, with water from the home, garage, and hardscape being diverted to this space. Water conservation was a major influence. A meadow was used as an alternative to the original turf lawn and other plants are both low maintenance and drought tolerant.

The yard of this home among the oaks had a lot of natural beauty, so we wanted to enhance that beauty rather than starting all fresh.

A raised planting bed was added to provide a space to grown delicious homegrown vegetables.
