Food producing plants at Bella Terra will be blended into the landscaping so that the result looks like a traditional ornamental landscape and not like a typical vegetable garden. Food plants, bushes and trees will be utilized extensively in some areas, less or not at all in others.
Even the wall along Havana Street will become a part of Bella Terra's garden. A combination of flowers and food plants, such as tomatoes, peas, beans, raspberries, grapes, etc. will turn this into a "living wall," providing beauty for the neighborhood and food for the Bella Terra community.
This integrated, thoughtful approach creates a garden that is verdant, sustainable, nurturing and beautiful. Our philosophy is to enhance the existing natural setting and create gardens that sustainably use water, require less maintenance than traditional landscaping, and are a source of food as well as beauty.
