3930 Keeshen Drive - Cluster 6

Click here for audio description of this garden.

The homeowners put in the garden in 1996, with a strong desire never to water or mow a lawn ever again. The work was all done by them, from digging out the grass to planting everything. Reclaimed concrete taken from the driveway along the side of the house was used for the pathway.

The garden is home to succulents, cacti, bougainvilla, salvia, dusty miller, lavender, lamb's ear, fortnight lillies, yucca, ice plant, agave, statice, giant bird of paradise, and herbs like rosemary, oregano and mint. It's also home to butterflies, moths, bees, and lots of birds, including hummingbirds.

The garden is never watered, except by rain and the water that they collect in their rain barrel!


  1. I am so impressed that your garden is only watered by rain. That's the way it should be...well, maybe also gray water.

  2. Thank you so much for all of your hard work on this blog!!

  3. Thanks -- we just never wanted to water -- both for green reasons and for laziness.

    And this blog is a labor of love! The energy behind this is awesome, and all due to Sherri!
