Event Info & Registration

Hello again! On Saturday, June 27th from 10am – 1pm, I will be conducting a live Succulent Tapestry installation at a lovely home in Thousand Oaks, CA. This event will be an opportunity for enthusiasts and landscape design professionals alike to see firsthand the transformation of a tired planter bed into a living work of drought-tolerant art. I recently participated in a similar event with the Queen of Succulents herself, Debra Lee Baldwin, in her incredible garden in San Diego. These opportunities do not come frequently, so don’t miss out!

The event will include light snacks and refreshments for all, as well as a small container and supplies with which to make your own small Succulent Tapestry to take home with you.

The cost of this event is $85, payable via PayPal or any major credit card. There is a link just below to complete the registration and payment.

Fake Grass? Synthetic Turf?

As we find ourselves constantly on the bleeding edge of best-practices in California landscaping, the subject of fake grass/synthetic turf arises all of the time. While we have our own opinions on these lawn alternatives when it comes to aesthetics and functionality, we like to hear what others are saying about the subject. The blog post that we are linking to today offers some good insight on changing over to synthetic turf and what to expect after making the change.

It is probably worth mentioning that we almost always oppose the installation of synthetic turf, but we hope that this article can provide some useful information to those of you considering replacing that water guzzling lawn. Pass along the news to someone you know that might also be interested in lawn alternatives!
