Going waterless in Little Forest Hills

I’ve had more requests lately for landscapes with no irrigation…since water restrictions are likely here to stay, it makes sense. Both of these are landscape ‘renovations’–editing existing landscapes, saving what works, moving things around, and adding a little bit here and there.

This yard just need some consistency on the ground plane. Grasses were added for softness, and furniture is awaiting the next budget cycle. Agave pups were separated from the big mama plant. Chopped stone borders were repurposed as a new walkway–what the owner did over his spring break!
