LA LOMA DEVELOPMENT COMPANY work 

The scope of each project is first determined through observation and understanding the clients' needs.  No matter the size, La Loma always prioritizes the unique features and resources of each site. Our client's call on our services to enhance the ecological function and beauty of their home or project.

// OUR METHOD // 
SITE ANALYSIS AND PLANNING: 

We always begin with observation of existing features & needs of the space.

THE RIGHT PLANT IN THE RIGHT PLACE

We pay close attention to microclimates that can make a small corner of your property more suited for one type of plant or use than another. 

WILDLIFE HABITAT

We believe attracting birds, butterflies and other wildlife to landscapes makes the landscapes more interesting and ecologically beneficial.

MANAGE OUR MOST PRECIOUS RESOURCE

One of the keys to sustainable landscaping is to group plants with similar water requirements together, maximize  water as efficiently as possible are, and incorporate sustainable technology .

WISE PRUNING

Knowing when and how to prune is one of the more refined skills of our professional garden managers at La Loma. 

ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY EQUIPMENT

At La Loma we use hand tools instead of gas or electric powered tools whenever possible. Minimizing the air and noise pollution from blowers and other powered tools is another aspect of our commitment to minimizing our environmental impact in everything we do.

NO EXPOSED SOIL

Covering exposed soil with mulch reduces the need for weeding and watering by decreasing the rate of evaporation from the soil. It also moderates the soil temperature and helps improve the microbial life and organic matter content in the soil.

HEALTHY SOIL=HEALTHY PLANTS 

Compost builds healthy soil, and healthy soil creates healthy plants that grow bigger and faster and are less susceptible to attack by insects and diseases. Adding compost to the soil is one of the most important things La Loma does to ensure an optimal environment for plants.

I.P.M. (INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT)

La Loma uses I.P.M. to manage pest pressure and maintain healthy landscapes while minimizing the use of dangerous chemicals that disrupt the surrounding ecosystem.

USE RENEWABLE MATERIALS

La Loma is the leader in the use of broken concrete as a design element. We also use recycled lumber, bamboo and other renewable materials to minimize the ecological footprint of our projects.
