Main St. Elementary

La Loma Development was honored to receive a City of Los Angeles Resolution, presented by Councilmember Jan Perry for our work at Main St. Elementary, in particular, "creating sustainable eco-friendly living spaces within our communities and our schools, improving the quality of life for all." Main Street Elementary School in Central Los Angeles was a project completed with the collaborative work of Tree People, La Loma Development, and over 600 community volunteers over several weekends.

Plaza Morazan

The recently completed Plaza Morazan in the Central American concentrated neighborhood of Westlake is the newest sustainable addition to public space commemorating cultural heritage in Los Angeles and the first ever public space dedicated to Central Americans in the U.S. La Loma led the design, inspired by former LA Creek Freak Joe Linton, which included converting a desolate triangle median, into a pocket park with authentic reclaimed cobble stone, stained poured concrete in the shape of Central American countries, urbanite walls, and drought tolerant plants.

Wallace Neff Landscaping Makeover

This gorgeous Wallace Neff house, includes a front yard edible garden shaped in spiraling pathways lined with Arroyo granite rocks, first planted with bush beans then transitioned to an active seasonal edible garden. We also installed a broken concrete retaining wall with a custom curvy metal fence, layered with espaliered apple trees and a custom reclaimed old growth redwood gate.

Superadobe Planters for Edible Backyard Gardening

This backyard is all about bench height planters for vegetables and herbs. Our client specifically wanted something that would create seating, and make it easy to garden while sitting or standing. The horse shoe shaped planter is made of onsite earth filled bags with stucco to match the house. Also called Superadobe the bags are similar to long uncut sandbag rolls, filled with dirt and then compacted.
