LOCATION: Fashion Island, Newport Beach, Calif.

COMPANY: ValleyCrest Cos., Calabasas, Calif.

THE DETAILS: This property, which won a 2013 National Landscape Awards of Excellence Grand Award from the Professional Landcare Network, has been a longtime ValleyCrest client. Designed to make luxury shopping a destination event, Fashion Island is an iconic outdoor retail center that blends stores, al fresco dining and signature events year-round—but the holidays are truly special.

“Our team puts together the landscape of the Santa set in about 10 days,” notes Ken McCausland, account manager, ValleyCrest Landscape Maintenance. “This includes pine trees of various sizes, 150 five-gallon holly bushes, about 200 flats of alyssum for ground cover to represent snow, about 800 poinsettias and several other plants to complete Santa’s yard.”

In addition, the miniature landscape surrounding an “elf village” is completed with young pine trees, sticks, rock forming a stream with stones from an actual mine and lighting.
