Greenscape California by Andrea Stuart with Andrew Call / photos by Chris Iatesta Greenscape California has managed and maintained the Colonial Terrace gardens for many years. For as long as the nearly 100-yearold establishment has used Greenscape, General Manager Amber Cyran reports only content guests. “Guests are always commenting on how beautiful the gardens are and how they love to stay here because of them,” she says. She is especially pleased with Greenscapes approachability and flexibility in coming up with dynamic ways to improve and maintain the gardens. “The owners are always available. Colonial Terrace is happy to take advantage of Greenscape’s native plant knowledge and expertise,” adds Amber. “You can tell when someone really enjoys what they do, and Greenscape truly loves gardens.” Every time James Neckopulos’ and his wife look out their window they’re reminded of the beauty that attracted them to Carmel. Even their yellow lab, Zach, loves living amongst native plants, walking paths, and the natural stone patio. “We wanted a low maintenance, eco-friendly environment. The Greenscape team delivered on all counts,” he says. Having lived up and down the California coast since 1981, James and his wife have settled on the Peninsula and are pleased with Greenscape’s intuitive ability to recreate that natural central coast experience. And, with Greenscape’s unique xeriscaping method, using droughttolerant plants, mulch, and decomposed granite as alternatives for water-wasting grasses, the Neckopulous family has happily beautified their property in a sustainable way.
