Mr. Jeremy Rappoport, President of RDCS LLC provided construction management services while renovating the Sunset Boulevard estate landscape in the fall of 2009 in preparation for the Art + Architecture Tour. The Owner of the French Country estate contracted with Mr. Rappoport for landscape and horticultural design, consulting and construction management services to renovate the 1.5 acre estate grounds. The goal of the renovation was to enhance the exterior environment and blend with the interior artwork, colors and estate architecture.
The garden was absolutely ablaze with annual and perennial color, both in the landscape and artfully arranged bronze, ceramic, and terra cotta urns and color pots throughout the grounds. Many new and uncommon species of trees, shrubs and perennial flowering herbaceous plants provided a spectacular backdrop for the priceless private collection of American Impressionist art inside the estate. Of particular note was the beautiful use of the Eastern Redbud trees framing the backyard fountain area, the gorgeous pathway and ironwork arbor with flowering vines and a garden area filled with Gerbera Daisy, Begonia, Cyclamen, Dahlias, and Dianthus, not to mention flowering hybrid perennial shrubs, vines, annuals and bulbs. Still in evidence were a few remaining tulips, although the major bloom of over 4,700 tulip an iris bulbs had already finished.
Mr. Rappoport, who attended the tour, was pleased by the response and acclaim from many of the guests attending the tour. During a lunch break, guests had the opportunity to ask Jeremy Rappoport landscape and horticultural questions and were amazed to learn about safe organic products and methods available for their vegetable and landscape gardens. Mr. Rappoport stated "it was a very gratifying experience to speak to many wonderful guests, receive their generous compliments and answer as many questions as possible during a limited amount of time, the organizers at LACMA did an incredible job."
