This month has been a very very busy one... I have been working hard on creating the newest landscape and waterfeature additions to the Hotel Bel Air. I am pleased to be preserving the landscape and continuing the traditions of the beautiful grounds that have always been a beloved part of the Los Angeles Landscape. It has been a fascinating and exciting journey. Now I have to get back to the drawing board...

This was a special project in that my crew and I custom colored with acid stains a stone deck which was far too pale for the owners taste. We also landscaped and built a pergola, irrigation system, audio system, lighting, and did it all in another city in 10 days. It was quite a fun but tiring adventure. The views were fantastic and after work I enjoyed bike riding the hills surrounding the ranch. It was a wonderful town with a real general store, and very kind people.
