This homeowner personally tore out all of the Bermuda crab grass and replaced it with a series of gardens defined by stone paths with hand built arbors that welcome visitors. They have mixed California native, succulents and drought resistant plants with drought tolerant trees and a vegetable garden in back. There is a feeling of calm as soon as you pass through the arbors and enjoy the fragrance, the butterflies and the soft sound of wind chimes.
There is no irrigation system in front – they hand water once a week in the summer and have seen there water consumption reduced by half.
