Shawn Maestretti Garden Architecture is now Studio Petrichor!

An environmentally sensible façade garden space that separates L.A.’s Crescent Heights Plaza apartment building from a very busy thoroughfare.

DROUGHT-TOLERANT YET LUSH

After getting word that there were plans to replace the existing front landscape with artificial turf, we enlightened the building’s board and engaged them with our design for a lively, lush, and exciting drought-tolerant garden space to soften the hard architecture of the building.

CONSCIOUSLY CALIFORNIAN

With connecting drifts of both Mediterranean and California-native plant materials, the three divided spaces are connected by color, texture, and movement, which creates a welcoming visual flow and sense of relaxation upon entry to the building.


CLIENT FEEDBACK

Shawn practices what he preaches. His gardens are indeed very beautiful and environmentally sensible. He has just finished the installation of a very large, very gorgeous front garden at our building. And it has paid off! We are getting compliments from the City and real estate community. Prices for apartments in our building are hitting new highs because the building has never looked better. We are a happy bunch.
