Co-owner with his wife, Lisa, of Sierra Azul Nursery and Gardens in
Watsonville, CA.

 

Mediterranean Climate :
Create Beauty with Appropriate Plants .......and Less Lawn

 

Jeff has been working with plants in the Bay Area and Central Coast for the last forty years; always with a eye on less lawn and more plants in a garden. Sierra Azul specializes in plants from the five Mediterranean climate zones in the world. The nursery includes over two acres of demonstration gardens.

 

  Replace your lawn or enhance an area conserving water while adding lasting character and beauty. Emphasis will be on plants that are useful when replacing your lawn and plants that are smaller in size and will fit into established landscapes. Learn the fundamentals of practical design, plant selection, building mounds and pathways, drip-irrigation, mulching and maintenance.
