Santa Monica Canyon

Native Oak woodland

To anchor a modern house, designed by Frederick Fisher & Partners, Campion Walker brought in a mature oak grove that at first frames the home and then invites the visitor to explore the grounds including an intimate culinary garden and stone fruit orchard.

The neglected hillside on the back of the property once overgrown with ivy was transformed into a California native oak woodland, with under-planting of ceanothus and manzanitas. 

We used recycled water to create a dramatic water feature cut directly into the limestone entranceway framed by a cacti and succulent garden.
