This August, we were contracted to construct a small park in order to beautify a utility substation in a lovely neighborhood in Del Mar, Ca. Over 17 days, we transformed a bare lot into a vibrant and beautiful park area.
We performed turf removal, one tree removal and cleared the soil of all debris.
We planted various drought-tolerant grasses and groundcover plants, as well as creating rock garden areas of decomposed granite and boulders. The boulders, besides aesthetics, will help prevent vehicles from accidentally driving into the park.
Drip irrigation was installed throughout the park will efficiently water the plants while avoiding water waste.
Using all our own equipment, we planted 6 new trees: 3 Arbutus and 3 Brachychiton.
The magnificent Fig Tree and its’ roots are highlighted by sunburst pebble stone. We also used the roots to delineate between the various grasses.
The walking trail made of decomposed granite provides a nice, shaded path through the park.
The finished product is a gorgeous park with many layers. As the grasses and groundcover plants spread and the trees grow, this park will become a shady, functional and beautiful addition to the neighborhood.
