This garden was an all lawn front yard with a straight path to the front door and a driveway.

The new garden is water-wise, colorful, and has a very low need for maintenance. 

Beautiful paving materials, artful arbors, large boulders, and very drought-tolerant plants come together to delight the owners with their beauty, setting a serene and relaxating mood and inviting them onto their front porch.

This landscape won the 2010 California Landscape Contractors Award for Medium Sized Residential Landscapes.

The last 6 pictures show the landscape in 2014, after it was established for 5 years.The garden is up to this day in exceptionally good condition thanks to good planning and monthly fine gardening maintenance.
