Phase I

We were fortunate to find the worst house on the best block.

Ugly House

Not everyone is up for the challenge of total transformation but for me it’s a dream come true to take something old and neglected and turn it into something spectacular.



Once we made the house habitable I set about work on the yard. My goals were multifold; First the grass had to go. Southern California is not an appropriate climate for grass, (we’ll get into that later) drought tolerant’s the only way to go. I wanted to level the yard to make it more user friendly and to create some space from the sidewalk. I also wanted to create habit for wildlife, bees and other pollinators and birds, an area for raised vegetable gardens and lounging space where we could sit and enjoy the sunset.
