Ocean Friendly Garden – Culver City High School

Location: 4401 Elenda Street, Culver City, CA 90230

The students at Culver City High worked together with West Basin Municipal Water District and other partners to create a 2,332 square-foot garden at the Robert Frost Auditorium. Replacing a planting palette dominated by ivy, the new ocean-friendly garden uses drought-tolerant plants that demand up to 80% less water for irrigation than the original landscaping. The design features several bioswales that capture stormwater runoff from the auditorium roof, retaining and filtering the water to irrigate the plants on the site and reduce polluted runoff to the ocean.
