A row of 'Swan Hill' olive trees along the fa├žade of the hotel towers add some privacy screening for the lower floor hotel rooms. As you approach the main resort entrance, a large retaining wall with black ledger stone veneer divides the garden from the road with olive trees and 'Trumpeter' roses. Viewed from the park, palm trees and Canary pines create a backdrop for the stage area. South Slope Plantings To give a lush garden view from the meeting rooms the slopes to the south of the new hotel tower were planted with a mix of woody shrubs and soft grasses in curving patterns that resemble the hardscape patterns of the plaza. Canary and Eldarica pines provide screening from the rooms to the retail center across the street. The medians were also enhanced with a row of date palms and crape myrtles, flanked by Southern live oaks and new landscape, all irrigated with recycled water. 10-Month Schedule Met With a tight schedule of only 10 months from the first meeting to opening day, the contemporary and versatile design concept was embraced by the team from day one. What really made this a success was the collaboration between Sotelo Landscape Architects, JCJ Architecture's lead designer Stephanie Lee, the design build team of Swinerton Builders and the owner, the Viejas Band of Kumeyaay Indians.
