gather one & all. Itâ€™s that time of year again, time to fall in love with fall. In celebration of the season and the approaching holidays, we focus this issue on our many accomplishments, and the people and projects that made 2013 such a success. We begin with a feature on our award-winning project; the Harnish Residence in beautiful Shell Beach proving that amazing landscapes do come in small packages. We then cover some clever gift ideas for the garden-lover in your life with our first-ever gift guide, and even provide some tips for giving from your own garden. We hope you enjoy the late fall/holiday issue of our Addison Landscape E-Zine and we wish you a very wonderful holiday season. Tyler and Alli Addison, Owners Addison Landscape, Inc
IN THE NEWS
TYLER ADDISON NAMED PART OF THE NEXT GENERATION OF LOCAL LEADERSHIP!
We’ve always been proud of our business, the work we do, our incredibly talented team and the man who runs it all. And now, our very own Tyler Addison has been officially recognized for his superior entrepreneurial and leadership skills. This month, Tyler was declared one of the top 40 young professionals under the age of 40 working in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. A tremendous honor, and one we are very humbled by. The special report, produced by the Pacific Coast Business Times, showcases the top 40 professional individuals on the Central Coast, all under the age of 40. Pacific Coast Business Times received hundreds of nominations for the awards and worked hard to select the 2013 class of upand-coming local leaders. Of the 40 incredible individuals selected, Tyler Addison was the only member chosen that works in the construction industry and one of 17 members who own their own business. Pacific Coast Business Times Editor Henry Dubroff noted that several factors are taken into consideration when sifting through the many qualified young leaders. “We look for people who have gone above and beyond by taking leadership roles in their organizations or starting their own companies.” The 2013 “40 Under 40” class is an excellent group of individuals with many impressive accomplishments, and we are proud to be considered among them. To read more about the report and the 2013 “40 Under 40”class, and to learn about the Pacific Coast Business Times click here. But most importantly, a huge thank you to our valued clients and associates for your continued support!

THE REVIEWS CONTINUE TO POUR IN, HERE WE HIGHLIGHT A FEW OF OUR FAVORITES
“...I specifically asked for local and drought tolerant plants and had no idea the lovely variety that is now in my yard. I also asked for easy to maintain - and it is. A couple of minutes a day and I have new growth and beautiful flowers. The rock veneers have transformed what was a nice house into a truly magnificent one.
TO QUOTE MY UPS GUY I HAVE MY OWN PRIVATE OASIS AMONG THE OAK TREES. All my questions were answered in a timely manner and the fact that Addison Landscape is still checking on the progress of my project several months after completion to ensure my satisfaction is really impressive...”
CLIENT / Cheryl Alley with Tyler Addison
- Cheryl Alley, Arroyo Grande Project Completed 2013 “..Our gardens are not only beautiful, but functional. We have enjoyed picking lettuce, tomatoes, vegetables, and herbs from our gardens for the meals we enjoy cooking together. Sitting on the patio and watching the sun going down is one of our favorite pastimes. We sit by the built-in fire pit Tyler designed, watch the hummingbirds race around the flowers next to us, BBQ and entertain friends and family in our beautiful BBQ island area, and drink cocktails!
IT’S LIKE LIVING IN A MONET PAINTING.
PLOTNER RESIDENCE / Nipomo
Our private dining and spa areas allow us privacy at night to still enjoy the outdoors while relaxing. Tyler has truly given us another living area that is so enjoyable, we often defer going out to dinner so we can take advantage of the beauty that surrounds us...” - Jenny Chadburn & Gary Plotner, Trilogy Nipomo Project Completed 2012
EDELMAN RESIDENCE / Pismo Beach “Let me first begin by saying: ‘I don’t do referral letters ----- Until Now!’ I was looking for a contractor who had the knowledge and expertise to perform many varied jobs at my residence such as: demolishing my whole driveway and building it from the ground up with compacted road base and sand, installing a new paver driveway, pouring concrete for new stairs and a stem wall bordering the drive, redesigning a new drain system throughout my front yard and driveway in order to prevent excess water overflow, installing an elaborate lighting system to illuminate and enhance the beauty of my home, stubbing out electrical wiring for a marble water fountain, and also designing and planting new landscape...Tyler humbly conveyed to me with confidence and self-assurance that the job would present no problem and his company was wellequipped to take on this multi-faceted project. He stressed that he prided himself in performing the highest quality work and being thorough in every dimension of the job... They began work within a few weeks meticulously removing the old driveway in small chunks and intricately cutting it away from the sides of the stucco wall leaving only the impression of where the concrete use to be. Their work was so meticulous that even the neighbors started to congregate to admire it. Their team started at exactly the same time each day and left at exactly the same time each evening leaving my property pristine and clean after each day’s work.
LIKE I SAID BEFORE, “I DON’T DO REFERRALS.” BUT THIS OWNER, THIS TEAM, AND THEIR WORKMANSHIP CANNOT GO WITHOUT BEING RECOGNIZED! - Sharon Edelman, Pismo Beach Project Completed 2011
BIG IMPACT WITH THE HELP OF ADDISON LANDSCAPE, ONE COUPLE TAKES ON A MAJOR LANDSCAPING RENOVATION ON THEIR COZY SEASIDE HOME THAT DELIVERS A GRAND IMPRESSION Produced by Alli Addison Photography by Amber Wighton
A WELCOMING ENTRANCE
ccessibility, multi-functional spaces and a relaxing environment were the criteria used in helping Mike and Chris Harnish of Shell Beach design their new outdoor living space and hardscape. They had an idea of what they wanted, but needed some help in pulling those ideas together for a cohesive look. The project included a new ‘Celtic Wall Step and Riser’ entry way, extensive retaining systems, a ‘Bergerac’ paver driveway and pathways, stucco courtyard walls, stone veneer accents, a large front ‘Mega Arbel’ paver patio and pathways, a beautiful fire feature, two water features, softscaping, container plantings, and an impressive outdoor cooking suite. 10
The project, completed in 2012, exemplified the quality and level of craftsmanship Addison Landscape is known for, and was impressive enough to garner two 1st place California Landscape Contractors Association awards - one for a Medium Residential Project and the other for a Hardscape Project. Recently featured in The San Luis Obsipo Tribune for the Home and Garden section, the Harnish project showcases the level of collaboration our team has with our clients and the personal touches you can incorporate to make an outdoor space feel like your own.

ometimes the best gifts during the holiday season are of the homemade variety and at Addison Landscape, we believe you need not look any further than your own back yard for so me great gift ideas. Here we round up our favorite â€œfrom the gardenâ€? gifts:
YOUR HOLIDAY GIFTING EXTENDS BEYOND THE STORE - DO A LITTLE HOLIDAY SHOPPING IN YOUR GARDEN THIS SEASON!
walk out into your landscape, select your favorite specimens and start pressing. Never pressed flowers before? Check out this handy tutorial from Better Homes and Gardens: http://www.bhg.com/ gardening/design/projects/make-pressed-flowers/
Got Citrus? Our team loves to incorporate citrus trees into our landscape designs for many reasons, and there is no simpler gift than giving a small basket lined with a brightly-colored tea towel and overflowing with citrus from your own garden.
We also fell in love with these botanical frames, perfect for hanging on the Christmas tree: http://www.shopterrain.com/holiday-treeornaments-1/botanical-frame-ornament-rectangle/ productOptionIDs/bd0459cc-8958-45c4-b120330bd8a8856a
Under Pressure. One year an Addison Landscape team member was gifted a beautiful pressed flower ornament to hang on their tree and since, that idea has stuck with them. Simply
Give the Gift of Relaxation: Make bath satchels to place under the running water of a bath using aromatic plantings from your landscape such as lavender, rosemary, geraniums, jasmine and basil.
Above: Culinary Lavandula intermedia ‘Provence’ planted at Niner Wine Estates, Paso Robles, Opposite: Rosemary planted at Niner Wine Estates, Paso Robles.
What you will need: muslin or cheesecloth, ribbon, fine oatmeal (a great skin softener), and fresh herbs and flowers. Create bundles from the muslin by cutting 4” circles, then place the fresh herbs, flowers and fine oatmeal in the center of each circle. Gather the muslin into a bundle and tie tightly with the ribbon. Hanging the satchel from the faucet while you run a hot bath will release the fragrances, then let it dangle in the water for the duration of your soak.
