_

Landscape inspiration:

“The dune scrub community is found on inland dunes landward of the foredune community. It is characterized by densely-packed shrubs interspersed with scattered areas of grasses, wildflowers, and open sand.” – www.nps.gov

Our design response to test:

Select plant species that would naturally grow in this community that are native to San Francisco

Cluster mid-size shrub planting together and cluster lower level planting together so that variation massing/ height variation is clear
