I collaborated on this project with my former mentor. He worked with a local pool builder to design the water feature. I was very adamant about incorporating some native plants into the design due to the nature of the site- a native casino located in the foothills of central California. Understanding my sensitivity for the cultural component of the planting, my mentor turned the plant design over to me. As a result, we incorporated Deer Grass, Redbud, and Manzanita in addition to drought tolerant ornamental plants.
