CA native plants: Coast live oak

I also enjoy grilling over live oak. Definitely need one of these!
Coast live oaks look best and are happiest with other drought-tolerant native plants, like manzanita
Due to their susceptibility to oak root fungus, native oaks are intolerant of summer water and prefer to be planted in a naturalist setting where they won’t receive irrigation during the dry season. Coast live oaks look best and are happiest with other drought-tolerant native
How to use it. A live oak is a shade maker, a tree to build a fort in, to climb in, to hang a swing from. Younger trees, as in this design by Blasen Landscape Architecture, look perfectly at home in wilder or casual parts of a garden.

brittle tree like a fruitless mulberry. Not a disease-prone one like an ash. Oaks are classic. My personal choice: coast live oak (although we now have to be concerned about sudden oak death).

What type of sod are you using to grow so well under oaks?
I live in Tampa on a lot with many oaks. I haven't been successful with St.Augustine.
Thanks Mariko. Quercus virginiana, Live Oaks
Excellent maintenance program regarding mowing intervals, spraying and fertilizing. Second: The lawn is under an automatic irrigation system. Third, the Oaks are regularly thinned out by a licensed arborist to allow more light to go thru the canopy an into the grass and shrubs. There are several varieties
which resemble these but have a brownish flower.... my front yard is so similar to this, it is truly magnificent, all though you have the beauty of oak trees which are beautiful on there own and rare, I have a mix of evergreen and maple :)

The bridge connecting the sleeping and living structures allows cool ocean breezes to pass from the marsh to the front yard; decks and stairs to pool and terrace visually connect inside and out
great views, a live-edge side table, root-ball bases on the coffee table, plants, natural finishes and plenty of open space connect the space to its surroundings even more. Here you can see how hugging as many trees as possible in the site planning can pay off — not only are the live oaks beautiful to

nestled under live oak trees set far back from the street and neighbors. “Their site felt like it wanted that house,” Cuppett says. And because the most important room to the wife is the kitchen — she's an avid cook — Cuppett put that space on the best possible spot on the site: under the live oak trees at

Love the plants and the arrangement. Really works with the CA oak
Live oak thrives and looks best with other California natives and Mediterranean plants, such as manzanita, ceanothus, lavender and rosemary. Pruning out whole
nature can help you adorn your home. There is no replacement for a gorgeous tree like the one here, for example. Nature brings peace and calm to our lives. We were made to be in contact with nature all the time. This terrace takes advantage of the surroundings and blends nature in by adding plants to the

Love this idea for under my oak tree
Because of their size and untidiness (dropping leaves, catkins, acorns), live oaks are best at the edge of property, in a somewhat natural section. Don't plant lawn or ground covers under existing old trees; this encourages root diseases. It’s also better not even to pave the soil surface. Trees that
