Garth Ruffner Landscape Architect
Driveway from 3rd Street
This 29 unit housing development is located on a one acre lot at the corner of 3rd
and C Streets. Work was completed in 2007.
Developer: Leonard Development Co.
Architect: Mogavero Notestine Associates
Civil Engineer: Nolte & Associates
Two commercial spaces are located at the main intersection.
The planters in the interior of the project are narrow and require very compact plant
materials. All the landscaping is irrigated with a highly efficient drip irrigation
system to conserve water.
The project helps to give an urban flavor to the center of West Sacramento.
Chanticleer Pear trees, a narrow, upright variety of the species, were used to provide
shade from the setting sun without encroaching on the units.
