Landscape Designs and Ideas Portfolio

With the proper landscape designs and ideas using water-wise landscaping we can transform the atmosphere of your entire residence.  As a designer, I take the time to get acquainted with any property that I am working on. This helps me to develop and draft my garden designs based on direct input from my clients.  Working with you, I’ll find a way to renovate your outdoor space in a way that works harmoniously with both your tastes and our region’s climate.

I am continuously updating my portfolio with photos from my latest water-wise landscape projects from around San Diego County.  Please browse through my project files below to see a sampling of water wise landscape designs from my recently finished landscapes.  Then call Botaniscapes by Tracey today!

After the turf!  New water wise yard for El Cajon Homeowers

In this arid part of San Diego County, these homeowners are welcoming a new idea of a California front yard. Their previous lawn has been removed and improved with colorful water-wise perennials and succulents. There is a newly established planting bed with mulch nearer to the house and the other areas on either side of the driveway have been updated with a gold decomposed granite ground cover. Additionally, a new Palo Verde 'Desert Museum' tree has been added to complement the landscape.

Installed just three months ago, this new front yard is changed by taking out the lawn and putting in a dry creek bed focal point. Succulents and flowering perennials are being drip irrigated.

Bonita, CA

This turf removal project has just been updated with a gravel pathway through the front yard and along the edges of the driveway. Water-wise plant material has been used to replace long time existing shrubs to convert the front yard to drought tolerant plant material and pending water feature.
