Las Alturas Estate

The goal was to accentuate the drama of the site by creating a place deeply connected to the native surroundings. The rugged beauty of Santa Barbara backcountry inspired the installation of thousands of native grasses to re-create meadows and oak woodland.

Mature California Live Oakswere installed to compliment an existing grove. A swale was sculpted through the meadow and accentuated with boulders and riparian plantings.  Plantings close to the residence echo rugged drought tolerant pioneer gardens that, left to their own devices, flourish.
