The Mattos-Ince Compound of 2.5 acres is a Desert Spanish Colonial built in 1953, with white stucco structures and red tile roofs. One landscape goal was to protect the creosote and take advantage of this native plant via a bit of water and careful pruning. The creosotes therefore serve as hedges, unique trees and low level mounds of evergreen accents. An automated, low-maintenance irrigation system with bubblers, drips and a couple of sprinkler heads is well-suited for both owner and landscape. Trees drink from a greywater system. Drainage swales help to slow and move rainwater.
