Pacific Ridge School is an independent college preparatory school located in Carlsbad, CA. Jennifer Spencer led a team that developed a master plan for the private Pacific Ridge school which integrated existing buildings and site features into a plan that expanded the campus to fulfill the future needs of the school. Priority was given to creating a context-sensitive landscape design that would grow with the campus as it developed. Construction documents were created for Phase 1 and 2 of the master plan. Included in these documents is a landscape plan that is comprised of native plants associated with the Coastal Sage and Chaparral plant communities of this area that will serve as an education tool for the school. In addition to the low water use plant palette, other water conservation measures include a cobble bioswale and well-designed irrigation features. Phase 1 and 2 of the project have been completed.
