Santa Monica rests mostly on a flat slope that angles towards the Pacific Ocean with Venice to the South. The low hills allow the moderate Mediterranean climate to run several miles inland, perfect for California friendly, water wise gardens. Fog prevalent during the summer mornings provide humidity and low sun intensity, optimizing a sustainable landscape. Santa Monica has stringent municipal codes so utilizing drip irrigation and native plants are encouraged in new landscape designs. The densely populated city is diverse in its properties with single family homes to multi-unit buildings and is architecturally varied. Landscapes can be designed to match the range of architecture while applying eco-friendly plants and irrigation.
