Point Loma Bayside Landscape Renovation

We had the great fortune to work with Spurlock Poirier Landscape Architects on this project, which involved replacing a twenty year-old tropical landscape.

This project proved to be very challenging, in part due to the root damage caused by previously existing timber bamboo and palms. Roots had grown under paving, into drains and pipes and throughout the planter areas, so all had to be carefully removed before replacement efforts could begin.

We worked very closely with the landscape architects to create a more native California theme, revolving around the selection and placement of some beautiful Sycamore trees which complemented the structure nicely and provided an instant view barrier along tight property lines and tall neighboring structures.

We added in planter walls to provide more planting area, replaced or modified all drains to improve patio and planter drainage and installed a state of the art drip irrigation system with an ET controller and a fertilizer injection system to properly feed the new plantings.

The understory plantings consisted of native ferns, grasses and shrubs and in full sun areas we planted a variety of succulents and low water shrubs, with various sizes of crushed rock mulch.

We also installed Corten metal planter boxes and planter edging, which added a nice touch to the existing modern look and feel of the structure.

To put the icing on the cake, we installed Auroralight Brass LED lighting fixtures, for path lighting, spot lighting on the trees and hanging lights in the Sycamore trees to show the structure of the trees and provide soft ambient light on the walkways below.
