Location: La Quinta, California
DEA designed and coordinated the development of the overall landscape and median landscape for The Madison Club, a private golf course community in La Quinta. The Madison Club brings the spirit and glamour of old Hollywood and Bel Air to the desert. The challenge for the DEA team was to stay true to the concept, while also being conscious of water use and climate conditions. Due to the large scale of the project, acquiring the quantities of plant material was a challenging undertaking. After extensive research, the DEA team selected hundreds of large specimen trees and flowering shrubs that will thrive in the desert environment and keep the overall project concept intact.
