When removing a lawn, you need to think about what you’re going to replace it with.
In this case, an orchard was selected, surrounded by gravel. The drip tubing waters only the trees and the rest of the area remains unwatered, saving on the water bill. As the trees mature, they’ll fill in nicely.
My client moved into a beautiful home overlooking the ocean. The downside was that her front lawn was being used as the neighborhood doggie bathroom. She did not want to build a wall so we chose to install a “wall” of succulents.
What she gained was a garden filled with color, low maintenance and the dogs were no longer interested. An added bonus is that her water bill is much lower, even though the garden is entirely planted out.
There were some very nice succulents in this garden, but it was in need of an update.
Now the garden has both colorful and textural interest. It won’t be long before the plants have grown and created a beautiful entry.
