Westbrew Landscape

description.

The Del Mar Partnership and the owners of Westbrew hired Betsy K. Schulz to create a durable, low-maintenance landscape, inspired by the beach-side setting. Betsy seeded the concrete with beach pebbles, various shells of different sizes and tumbled sea glass. She layered these same materials into the poured concrete walls and the cantilever caps of building walls, benches and planters. The caps are polished for easy cleaning and to add a smooth surface for seating. To unify the space, she specified that the concrete flow from inside the pavilion to the outside areas. She had a 5,000 pound granite fire pit craned into the center of the space as a focal point and to add warmth. A previously unused space under the stairs was turned into a dining area, with a fountain grotto, and lush plantings. Around the building she incorporated boulders, succulents and low-water mediterranean plants that grow well in beach-front Southern California. Fruiting passion vines are planted on trellises, Betsy designed, to add privacy from the parking lot. The fruit will be used to make the newest Westbrew beer. Custom copper planters top off the design by adding interest to the concrete and stone next to the public stairway.
