This garden has combined California native palms, drought resistant plants and some roses. They have planted some interesting succulents, including a fire stick cactus with beautiful red and orange fire sticks. There are towering twin palms in the front as a centerpiece for the yard. The sky plants are a favorite with the butterflies and the hummingbirds. There are crushed rock and small pebbles to fill in the landscaping.
They began the project over 8 years ago, doing everything from scratch, designing the plan themselves. What began as a big job is now easy maintenance. Although they have an irrigation system, they find it uses more water than they need. Instead, they water by garden hose as needed.
