Median Plantings

It all began with beautification efforts for the south entrance to the city of Palos Verdes Estates (PVE) on PV Drive West.  After editing out any unhealthy or inappropriate plantings Carl Moritz, the new City Forester, began developing plans for new median plantings.  Meetings with volunteers from the LBHOA Parklands committee headed by Don Culler expanded the original vision to include; decomposed granite (DG) walking trails, boulder seating areas, and the now familiar PVE stone signage.  A sophisticated range of easy care drought tolerant plantings has filled in nicely over the years, making a pleasant journey whether walking, jogging or passing by in a car.

The north entrance to Lunada Bay was more recently completed with City funding and includes a subtle attractive combination of fluffy grasses, colorful bougainvillea, and durable groundcover.  It looks magical backlit with the ocean view beyond.
