Monica helps many clients incorporate edible plants into an ornamental landscape design. Edible landscapes utilize plants that look great year round, yet are low maintenance and don’t need to be replanted annually like many of those used in a kitchen garden. San Diego’s moderate climate is ideal for growing numerous species of edible and fruit bearing plants. A few examples are rosemary, pomegranates, guavas, bananas, blueberries, and tangerines. With the ongoing concerns over our region’s water supply, homeowner’s are increasingly choosing to have their landscapes serve a dual purpose of both visual enhancement and food production.
