La Loma Parkway Retrofit Featured in PWP Conduit

Our parkway retrofit and project of our summer intern Agathe Fontaine, was recently featured in the Pasadena Water & Power's Conduit newsletter. 

"It makes perfect sense that one of the very first customers for PWP’s new water-saving Parkway Retrofit Rebate Program would be one of Pasadena’s most progressive landscape design companies.

Urban Oasis

Marco Barrantes and Michelle Matthews of La Loma Development transform the local landscape one property at a time.

Since 2007, the Pasadena-based sustainable design and urban landscape architecture firm La Loma Development Co. has turned schools, parks, museums, residential properties and other landscapes into beautiful, environmentally sound Gardens of Eden. 

Now they’ve begun converting the property once utilized by historic Paul’s Auto in Northwest Pasadena, which serves as their headquarters.
The 30,000-square-foot auto mechanic yard and warehouse on the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Washington Boulevard is now being used as a center for green job training, ecological skills, sustainable development, urban architecture, permaculture, art and food systems.
