The Santa Monica Conservancy‘s new Preservation Resource Center represents years of community effort to preserve an historic shotgun-style beach cottage. Community members from throughout Los Angeles contributed to its restoration and move to a new highly-visible location adjacent to the library in Ocean Park.


FormLA Landscaping designed the garden to showcase a landscape aesthetic authentic to Los Angeles beach communities. The garden features a few hot blooms you can expect to grace gardens throughout Los Angeles in years to come.  Newly installed and opened in January 2016, we expect El Nino to help this garden quickly achieve its potential.
