Resilient in Brentwood

Persistent drought, excessive heat, and very high fire risk are the new normal in California’s scenic hillside communities. Prior to renovation, the two-acre landscape was comprised mostly of thirsty exotic plants, over 7,000 square feet of unused lawn, many flammable palm trees, and invasive species such as Brazilian Pepper.

The project scope included replacing 25,000 square feet of existing landscaping with California climate-appropriate plantings, native to California, South Africa, the Mediterranean, and Australia.
