Calabasas Townhomes


Las Virgenes Road, aka Malibu Canyon is ten miles of views and vistas from US 101 to the PCH in Malibu. This beautiful land holds a historic story of yesteryear in Southern California, yet maintains its own natural and rustic feel even as the mountainous canyon bows to the inevitable hands of time.

The sequestered town-homes of The Colony in Calabasas, and El Encanto provide a secure and serene environment within their gates. The architectural themes blend well with their native surroundings – Spanish-California with elements of the old California missions along the El Camino Reale surrounded by the towering chaparral-covered Santa Monica Mountains

Malibu Tree & Landscape have enhanced numerous dwellings in both communities sheltered within their private domains, always endeavoring and achieving to create a unifying theme, while providing a vision unique to the client’s wishes. Some examples are depicted herein…

Aqui Malibu


Aqui Malibu is a premier property designed and developed to the wishes and specific requests of the owners who wanted a contemporary, yet welcoming feel with an infusion of the Hawaiian Islands. The resultant ambiance is a pleasing and inspiring blend of the Malibu lifestyle and the Aloha spirit which draws people the world over. At its inception a bare-dirt project, every aspect of the development dovetails seamlessly with the others, from the hardscape patios, driveways, and turf-stone parking areas. The pool and spa command an ocean view down the narrow canyon which is accessed via custom wooden beach stairways and landings. LED lighting accents the vast and varied plantings abundant throughout the acre-plus grounds. Automatic irrigation and all drainage formats have been underlain to support the gardens and lawns.

Lark Ellen Cheviot Hills

This charming English Tudor home was built in 1927 – the low-maintenance and durable landscape reflects the warm, classic English Country garden feel and ambiance of the home. Perennial color and hardy plants and tree forms. In the backyard the 80 year old concrete which covered the entire area was recycled – breaking and stacking it creating low perimeter garden walls and rustic stepping stones in the lawns. Nothing was wasted.

Hillside Drive Topanga

This impressive seventeen acre property was inspired by the beautiful natural surroundings of the chaparral-covered mountains and solitude of the locale. A high-desert theme was chosen to most effectively merge with the natural landscape. Numerous native tree-forms and plantings were intertwined with the many other relating plant materials, always with low maintenance and water conservation paramount. Natural stone walkways and stairways access the many and various destinations throughout the vast grounds. Sand-finished colored concrete patios and natural stone embellishments accent the pool and spa and LED lighting is throughout the entire property, as is a complex water conserving automatic irrigation system.

A tranquil ‘getaway’ rooftop garden in the center of Beverly Hills CA 90210. Gives the residents a real sense of having a sizable yard atop the high-end, high-security condo complex.

Other containers are filled with French Lavender and dwarf olive.

Sweetwater Canyon Malibu

This property went through one of the major Malibu fires which miraculously left the house standing while charring the entire canyon. It is a beautiful contemporary home set in one of the prime canyons in Malibu with a full view of the iconic Malibu Pier, Santa Catalina Island to the south, and the rugged Santa Monica Mountains to the north. The lush plantings were not only meant to showcase the home, but there was a real need to incorporate many different approaches to erosion control and water management following the conflagration. All have been totally effective. The lap pool, spa, and an adjoining deck commands the deep canyon view while being isolated from the outside world in effect – as with the large backyard and dining patio. Automatic irrigation and LED lighting throughout.
