3417 Wade Street

This drought tolerant garden was designed using plants from South Africa, Australia and the Mediterranean region as well as California native.

The plants themselves inspired the garden as the homeowners had used them in a similar garden at a previous house and wanted to do their part to use less water.

They did everything themselves four years ago - from removing the lawn, building the stairway and paths, choosing the plants, and setting up the new watering system. They had a little help from a landscape architect friend in thinking about how to lay everything out.

This is a great visit for anyone interested in doing their garden themselves!
