The 5th annual YSE this past July was a resounding success, and the new Praca de Cascais plaza on Bridgeway in downtown Sausalito is starting to bloom! The landscape is complete and the plaza is already attracting locals and visitors alike. The Pistache tree leaves are budding, the ground cover foliage is bursting forth with color and another bench has been constructed under the lovely olive tree.

The landscape plan was designed by the prestigious SWA firm in Sausalito and includes familiar plants that are already found elsewhere in town. SWA’s goal was to reflect and therefore unify other landscape scenarios in town for continuity.
