Northridge Middle School
This is a modernization project with complete landscape and irrigation redesign for the Los Angeles Unified School District. The campus is located in a residential neighborhood with the north fronting Chase Street, between Zelzah Avenue to the east and Lindley Avenue to the west.
As a result of receiving the DROPS grant (Drought Response Outreach Program) from the State, the lawn area along Chase Street is re-designed to be a drought tolerant, low water use, native landscape with a bioswale traversing the widest portion of the frontage. This frontage highlights the various California desert and Mediterranean plant groupings and showcase the bio-filtration of localized runoff. The interior of the campus corridors have been made more shady and inviting. A mini botanical garden is added next to the lunch pavilion to enhance the amenity for the students.
Scope of Services
The scope of work for this project included an overall landscape master plan to satisfy all the elements in the DROPS grant. Our service includes landscape and irrigation designs, preparation of bid documents, specifications, cost estimate and construction administration.
