A Water Wise Point Loma Landscape Design 

After major improvements to the facade and the interiors of this home, the clients were ready for the finishing touches of the exterior with landscape design for this home in Point Loma.

A long period of construction left the site a complete mess. With water running toward the house, the grade needed to be corrected. Weeds had overtaken the property to complete the unkempt look. The goals were of course new curb appeal, a new front walk and a look that accented the Cape Cod architecture of the house. The owners also wanted to simulate a beach look and feel. Having a mix of sandy soil in the yard certainly seemed appropriate for this theme.

 A Point Loma Landscape Design That Complements the Cape Cod Architecture 

 Using various succulents and ornamental grasses, New Zealand Flax and a small amount of artificial turf, the look came together very nicely. The new front wall is a combination of interlocking pavers that frame the poured in place concrete rectangles. Adding in a dry river bed of beach pebbles and boulders added the remaining elements to complete the design.

This Point Loma landscape design was more about the textures of the grasses and grass-like plants, versus adding an array of colorful plants. The owners also wanted to keep the plants lower to maintain the soaring vertical lines of the house — despite a suggestion to add at least one taller element at one corner.

The end results were complete satisfaction from the owners and led to a second design and redevelopment of the backyard.
