VALUED CUSTOMERS & FRIENDS+

We’ve covered the full breadth and depth of California with our footprints. With each step we take, our affection for the state – its shifts in altitude and attitude, climate and soil, native flora and fauna – increases.

As we traverse the state this month, we look forward to a familiar feeling. Our love flowing out to every lovely natural thing, enveloping it, protecting it. We hope as you explore LA and beyond this summer, you know the same joy.

Sincerely,
Cassy and Kirk

By FormLA Staff: The Shotgun House Coastal Garden is in full bloom, just in time for Clean Beaches Week! This pretty little piece of the world does its part to keep the beach clean and lovely year round, absorbing runoff and cleaning water on its way to the big blue.  Tour the Garden

 

Throw Off Conformity!

By Cassy Aoyagi: Old school lawns are the grey sweat pants of the architectural world. They are cheap, easy, and comfortable. They also say “this is where I give up.”

There are alternative grasses that offer all the freedom of movement offered by lawns while highlighting your best architectural features – think architectural athleisure. Curious?  See the Latest Styles

 
 

WHAT TO EXPECT+

LA’s superbloom is just hitting the beach, which has stayed on the cool and grey though the start of the year. If you’ve grown bored of poppies and heat, head west to catch more native California beauty.

Blooming Now in LA

Bladderpod and Seaside Daisy are Blooming Now! These beauties will continue to brighten beach communities through the June Gloom while cacti get the heat they need to bloom in Valley, Mid-City and the Foothill communities.

Sustain Your Garden

Trees are going to need some extra love this summer. Those with smart irrigation, are set. We’ll give those without deep soaks at least once this month.

If you are DIY, be sure to check our  Summer Maintenance Checklists to stay on top of important tasks like this.
