George C. Page Museum

The Client

The George C. Page Museum is located at the Rancho La Brea Tar Pits in the heart of Los Angeles. Rancho La Brea is one of the world’s most famous fossil localities, recognized for representing the largest and most diverse assemblage of extinct Ice Age plants and animals in the world. Visitors can learn about Los Angeles as it was between 10,000 and 40,000 years ago, during the last Ice Age, when animals such as saber-toothed cats and mammoths roamed the Los Angeles Basin. Outside the Museum, in Hancock Park, life-sized replicas of several extinct mammals are featured.

The Project

Sprawled across a city block, the landscape at the George C. Page Museum consists of grassy park areas, border hedges, trees, and various ground covers. Because of the museum's high traffic volume, the landscape was showing signs of wear and tear. Pierre was brought on board to make the landscape look uniform year round.

The Result

After a few months on the project, the Page Museum began noticing greener grass, lusher trees, and smoother hedges despite the Museum's high traffic.
