Los Angeles – Taking away a lawn from the historic neighborhood of Hancock Park and replacing it with a landscape on par with formal tradition while utilizing very little water was the amazing challenge of this landscape. We came up with the idea of the “Chevron Parterre”. Quite simply it is a chevron stripe pattern of Lavender and Santolina on a perfect grid. African Boxwood replaces the traditional Boxwood and requires less than half the water. The pea gravel mulch gives it a Mediterranean touch, while never losing step with the appeal of the neighborhood.
