This project is located within an existing park across from a sports arena and between a Frisbee golf venue and the Shippley Nature Center. LCI was in charge of all aspects of management, design and plan implementation for the landscape design.
The design incorporates outdoor pedestrian spaces for seating and gathering as well as open outdoor corridors for seniors to enjoy views to the park beyond. Throughout the project, planting is designed to minimize water consumption using drought tolerant materials whereby creating an interesting array of plants and incorporating all the elements of its surroundings. All plant materials utilized on the project where chosen from a palette of plants that are California natives or those determined to be California ‘friendly’ and based on information provided from the Shippley Center. The irrigation incorporates the use of low gallonage and capillary action wicking to deliver water efficiently.
