St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Hacienda Heights chose Siapin Horticulture for their landscape project based on their reputation and previous work with other Catholic churches in Southern California. The church was named after John Vianney, a French parish priest born in 1786.
“Jean-Baptiste-Marie Vianney, T.O.S.F. (8 May 1786 – 4 August 1859), commonly known in English as St. John Vianney, was a French parish priest who is venerated in the Catholic Church as a saint and as the patron saint of parish priests. He is often referred to as the “Curé d’Ars” (i.e., Parish Priest of Ars), internationally known for his priestly and pastoral work in his parish in Ars, France, because of the radical spiritual transformation of the community and its surroundings. Catholics attribute this to his saintly life, mortification, his persevering ministry in the sacrament of confession, and his ardent devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. His feast day is 4 August.”
“There are dozens of institutions, including schools, seminaries, and churches named after Vianney in countries including Belize, Brazil, Canada, Guatemala, Haiti, Ireland, India, Pakistan, Philippines, England, United States, and Nigeria.”

Being chosen to do a landscape project for this church was truly an honor, knowing the rich history of the patriarch.
This project included a “smart” low volume automatic drip irrigation system with flow sensor and master valve to control excess water usage. Large specimen Olive trees were boxed for re-planting. California native and drought tolerant trees, shrubs and succulent groundcovers were also used. To finish the project, natural decomposed granite paving was put into the chapel garden patios.
