Argia Designs 2012 Year in Review

Last year was another busy year here at Argia Designs!  We designed and saw installed lots of new gardens all over the county (and in LA too!), had a great year volunteering with the Surfrider Foundation's Ocean Friendly Garden program, and we're looking forward to even more fun in 2013!!

Here are some photos of a few highlights of 2012:

Our Aluminum Agave sculpture went on display at Southwest Boulder & Stone in Pacific Beach.   The sculpture was hand hammered, cut, and riveted by Morgan in 2009 from salvaged aluminum rain gutters.

Great Egret in Fallbrook Meadow garden.  We got lots of great shots from clients of wildlife visiting their gardens!

Foster the Future, brainchild of the band Foster the People, help install a school garden in Imperial Beach.
Argia Designs owner and head designer Morgan with Mark and Cubby of Foster the People.  We all had a great time installing veggie beds, native plants, and a birdbath for the new garden and lots of neighborhood volunteers showed up to help and donate items!

Surfrider Foundation OFG Garden Installation at the Del Mar Fair.   Such a fun project with lots of volunteer help!  We took home 3 awards!

Goldfinch or Warbler?  Who can ID this friendly little guy enjoying a clients garden?

Lots and lots of new gardens!!
