New Product Offered | Landscape Maintenance Reference Guide

At CJM::LA, we value the long term success of our clients’ properties and the outdoor spaces we design.  With proper care and knowledge of best practices, gardeners and maintenance teams can help protect the investments our clients make in their outdoor environments.  This long-term approach will not only help maintain the market value, but also the aesthetic and cultural value of our clients’ designed landscapes.

In order to ensure our clients’ maintenance teams have the guidance necessary to properly cultivate these outdoor spaces, we are now offering Landscape Maintenance Reference Guides as a product available to both commercial and residential clients.  Serving as an educational tool to direct and facilitate the ongoing maintenance of our designed landscapes, these guides are tailored to each specific project or property and include a description of the landscape design objectives and maintenance goals; identification of relevant project requirements; and guidelines for plant and hardscape material replacements, weed and pest management, pruning, soils testing and fertilization, irrigation scheduling and system repair, water features, etc.

We are constantly exploring ways to better service our clients’ needs and are excited to offer this new tool to help maintain the integrity of our work and protect the value of our clients’ properties!

CJM::LA + AIASB Design Charrette 2020

At CJM::LA we seek out opportunities to create positive change in our community. The 2020 Design Charrette organized by the Santa Barbara Chapter of the American Institute of Architects aimed to Reinvigorate, Reinvent, Reimagine, and Repurpose our downtown with housing, energy, and life.  Both Courtney and Mariella from our office joined the charrette to work with local architects, planners, designers, students, citizens and professionals to develop a new vision for the design of our downtown core to lead us into the next 100 years.

Courtney collaborated with team B whose focus was on the downtown open spaces including the state street promenade, parks and plazas. Here are highlights of team B’s presentation of a new shared pedestrian promenade integrating stadium seating, stormwater, outdoor dining and public art.

Mariella collaborated with team 6A whose area of focus were the blocks between Figueroa, Carrillo, Anacapa and Chapala streets; encompassing the transit center, local eateries, banks and other essential infrastructure to our downtown core. Here are some of their design ideas that revitalize the transit center; integrating bus, bicycle and ride share, adding housing, retail spaces and open space to form a highly functioning and invigorating entrance to downtown Santa Barbara.
