Creating the True California Style GardenCalifornians have been known for two qualities thatmake The Golden State a great place to live in:Respect for diversity and pride in a culture thatcomes from the celebration of many world cultures.The cultural fabric of the state boasts influencesfrom every continent. Roxy Kim Perez, the founderand director at Forget-Me-Not Landscape Designincorporates this celebration in the intelligent designof aesthetically and culturally pleasing CaliforniaStyle Garden plots.
Since the San Diego- based firm was firstestablished, Roxy Kim-Perez has been a strongadvocate of environmentally friendly landscapingthat draws from California’s wealth of indigenousplants and locally available building materials. SanDiego imports 90 percent of its water from theColorado River and from Sierra Nevada runoff via apipeline that transports water from the SacramentoRiver Delta to Southern California. Native plantsand succulents adapt to the soil and weatherconditions better than plants from wetter climes andare therefore ideal for your garden. With decades ofknowledge and experience, Roxanne and her teamcarefully select the plants and materials that go intomaking your California Style Garden a reality.
