The purpose of this project is to evolve a bleak landscape into something that the home owner can appreciate and love. This project will demonstrate the knowledge of this process to provide as a guide for others. This project gives an overview of all aspects of a landscape project including: drawings of an irrigation layout, planting plan, drainage plan, and a construction plan. This project takes place in Riverbank, California, which is located in the Central Valley. The property’s main centerpiece is a pool and adjacent waterfall. However, the landscape currently surrounding the pool is very bare and lacks aesthetic appeal. This location is subject to scorching heat in the summer and freezing temperatures in the winter. Dealing with vast temperature fluctuations requires consideration in choosing ideal plant species. Also, an estimate plan and maintenance plan was constructed in accordance to the design. In addition, this project should serve as a template for someone interested in hiring someone to design, install, and maintain residential landscapes.
