The landscape of Brasada Estates is remarkably similar to that of northern Italy, bordered by national forests and wide open spaces revered in Southern California. The built landscape is designed to preserve and highlight the native Southern California flora while meeting the challenges presented by the hillside setting. It showcases the natural chaparral vegetation by incorporating large riparian open spaces, walnut woodlands, stands of sycamore trees and of course, majestic California Oak woodlands.
The open spaces are interwoven throughout the built landscape and often extend into individual parcels. These open spaces are a vital feature of Brasada Estates. Protecting them is critical to the quality of life for residents and the health of the environment so that both will flourish for many years to come.
