North City Water Reclamation Landscape Project

San Diego, CA

North City is the premier water reclamation plant for the city. This landscape restoration project focused on the conversion of what used to be turf (80% reduction) and original overgrown plant material, into a drought tolerant landscape. This project sits on approximately four acres of land which includes the grounds, upper and lower level meeting areas, and parking lots. Through the landscape provider, the landscape designer, and in coordination with the city, the intention was to create an attractive and engaging water-wise landscape for drought conditions that would comply with minimal water usage on this property. There are certain viewpoints and seating for the public to enjoy at their leisure, which capture views of ocean-inspired designs including a variety of beaches, a fire pit, crashed boats, dropped buoys and coral reefs.
