A series of concept drawings was developed for the existing medians of this large residential community...with an accompanying plant list of native and Mediterranean species that do well in this area.
From Larkspur Community
Each island is unique in form and size. Boulders are shown as a beautifying and integrating element across the community.
Along with the boulders, a robust 'palette' of well-adapted plant species is carried through the numerous medians, helping to create a lasting sense of neighborhood and community.
Trees and plants of varying heights, textures, and colors are chosen to provide interest and beauty in all four seasons. As well, these species were chosen for their low maintenance requirements.

The prior median has been removed, just the street lights remain.
From Bon Air Road - Larkspur
After a complete redesign by AvidGreen, this project began by complete demolition of the existing median.
A few months later...filling in colorfully with drought-tolerant, low-growing plants well suited to the heat and challenging roadway conditions.
A final inspection of the transformed median.
This new extension of the median is dressed up with attractive pebbles as a surface 'treatment.'
While the road is being resurfaced, new plants are laid out to be planted.
The new median under construction. New curbs, drainage, soil, and solar-powered irrigation are being installed.
