Our Southern California hillsides come with their own set of significant challenges: A balance must be found between fire protection, erosion control, native plant communities, and general aesthetics. For this Malibu home we used dramatic succulents nearer the home, where water storing capabilities form a strong defense line. California natives such as ceanothus and manzanita were used further away from the home for both their inherent erosion control properties and their transition to the native planting communities of the surrounding hillside.
