Bermed turf helps to buffer the church from busy Nut Tree Road. New trees were planted
away from the corner to allow a good view of the Church from Nut Tree Road.
The planting was kept very simple, using low Privet hedges to the front, backed by
more colorful perennials and shrubs.
Several large Valley Oak trees were retained along the Marshall Road frontage. Drip
irrigation has been installed on the soil surface, rather than being buried, to minimize
disturbance to the Oak roots.

Pedestrian accent paving was designed by the Landscape Architect. A radial pattern
with exposed aggregate concrete accents helps to unify various areas of the project.

The radial pavement pattern was also implemented at the plaza area between the Church
and the Rectory. The columnar trees are Flowering Pears.
