The District features high-end retail stores and upscale apartments nestled in an urban park-like setting. The challenge of this project was to create a “boutique” landscape appearance while allowing for the high-traffic “wear-and-tear” of a major mall. Beautiful trees soften the facades of storefronts and large planter pots add splashes of color and functionality.
The El Encanto Hotel
The El Encanto Hotel, located in Santa Barbara, California, is a boutique hotel with cottage rooms and breathtaking views of the ocean and Santa Barbara valley. Featuring an amazing array of flowering and exotic plant varieties, a reflecting pool, and numerous arbors and sculpture, El Encanto makes a lasting impression on visitors and hotel guests. Installed by Gothic in 2013, this project was the recipient of the President’s Award by the City of Santa Barbara for its beautiful contribution to the city. Gothic’s work at El Encanto was also recognized by the California Landscape Contractor’s Association (CLCA) for the overall best-in-class landscape installation for 2013.
Eastmark is a dynamic master-planned community located in Mesa, Arizona featuring beautiful parks, bike trails, and tree-lined sidewalks. Gothic’s construction team worked with General Contractors and City Planners to create a unique landscape that would stand out in a competitive environment. Gothic has installed the landscape, structures, and retaining walls that add character and curb appeal to this picturesque community.
Ascent at Warner Center
Located in Woodland Hills, California, Ascent combines native tropical plants and drought-tolerant succulents to create stunning curb appeal. Large Palm trees surround the apartment community and accentuate the earth tone colors of the buildings. The landscape beauty of this project truly makes the property stand out in the densely commercial Woodland Hills area.
This ultra-modern residential housing, located in Playa Vista, California, features a Pacific-inspired planting theme with decorative fountains, exotic plants, and decorative tiles and pavers. Interior courtyards feature tiered planting spaces which offer selective privacy to residence homes. The vibrant green of the abundant landscape compliments the bright colors of the individual buildings.
Dovetail Custom Home
This project for a private residence in Nevada creates a tropical paradise centered around a beautiful swimming pool. The goal was to accentuate the modern features of the home (such as floor-to-ceiling windows) and not to overwhelm or conceal them. Because of the close proximity to the swimming pool, planters feature “clean” plants that experience a minimum of shedding / leaf-drop.
Desert Ridge Home
The owners of this well-appointed residence intended to use it as a winter home and wanted a beautiful yet functional outdoor area for entertaining guests. Our challenge was to create a seamless transition from the inside of the home to the outside. Some of the highlights of this welcoming outdoor oasis include: a low-maintenance landscape featuring winter-blooming plants, a water feature, outdoor kitchen, and fire pits.
