On Saturday, November 10, SAMLARC hosted a Homeowner Landscape Planning Workshop to provide resources to residents who are looking to enhance the look of their home! Attendees gained a wealth of knowledge from landscape professionals that included an Architectural Consultant, and California Certified Nursery Professionals. Along with the professionals, our own SAMLARC team member, Alex Kuhlmann discussed landscaping resources available to homeowners through the Santa Margarita Water District.
Within the Mediterranean landscape profile, there are beautiful styles which derive from European countries such as Greece, Italy, France and Spain. This workshop focused on the Mediterranean style and how homeowners can create a personalized landscape while maintaining the community aesthetic of SAMLARC homes.
Attendees learned about landscape design from Michael Ledbetter, a landscape architect consultant. Michael emphasized the importance of properly submitting landscape design plans and how it can help homeowners gain an idea of what they want their project to look like. Michael also gave examples of different color palettes from the European styles that can enhance the look of homes by incorporating details such as fountains, columns, and mosaics.
