To create this landscape overlooking the Pacific Ocean just south of Santa Barbara, we terraced what was formerly a long, sloping, and water-thirsty grass lawn and planted the layers with drought-tolerant native plants. Dry-stacked stone retaining walls with integrated drainage add structural stability, and two levels of flagstone patios accessed via a decomposed granite garden path enable the owners to take full advantage of the balmy Mediterranean climate zone and ocean views.
