Design Build Sustain

We chose this field, in part, because we love how we feel in nature. We wanted to be close to it, and to bring that delicious feeling to others.

It took years for us to create something all our own. Thanks to Lisa Boone, Katie Falkenberg and the Los Angeles Times, we get to share our own garden, hopes and dreams with all of you. All of LA! We can’t imagine a more delightful way to kick off the summer!

We hope you too find yourself wrapped in the beauty and joy of LA’s authentic beauty this season. See you out there!

We are learning more about why we feel so good in nature and how to make the most of its impact on our health and well-being.

We keep LA’s outdoor spaces lush, clean, and hassle-free with craftsmanship, not chemicals. You can too!

Here are a few tips for maintaining an ideal habitat as we start summer:

+ Check performance of smart irrigation systems.

+ Hand water trees and containers as needed.

+ Deadhead, but leave some seeds for the birds.
