In Southern, California, Tournesol Siteworks had the opportunity to collaborate on a project with Land Concern, a leading landscape architectural firm. Land Concern has been providing design services for their client Thompson’s Building Materials in the city of Orange, for many years.
Land Concern was challenged to create an engaging and unique spot at Thompson’s Design Center, on the street-side patio, that would feel separate from the busy street. According to Philip Stevens, Project Manager with Land Concern, their goal was to “Convert an inefficient landscape to an outdoor sales center with displays for contractors and their clients to view products in "real life."
Not only was the design a challenge, but their client also wanted as many different materials to be showcased as practical, with a cohesive feel. They created two well-defined patios highlighting Thompson’s masonry with a low water focused landscape of horizontal and vertical flowering shrubs, succulents and grasses.
